Confused about Medicare? You’re not alone. That’s why this September, Baby Boomers, Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers in the Escondido area are invited to participate in an educational event, as part of National Medicare Education Week (September 15-21). This annual celebration begins exactly one month before the start of the Medicare Open Enrollment Period (October 15–December 7), and is designed to prepare older Americans with the knowledge they need to make confident, informed decisions about their Medicare coverage.
“We understand that Medicare can be confusing for many of our community members, and hope these informational sessions will help resolve this frustration,” said David Beevers, San Diego Oasis Program Manager for North County.
During the events, local United Healthcare representatives and a Walgreens pharmacist will address people’s top questions and will be available to speak one-on-one. The event, will take place on Tuesday, September 19, 6 p.m., at OASIS North County at Escondido Senior Center, 210 E Park Ave, Escondido.
To RSVP, go to NMEW.com and select an event on the map or call: 1-855-603-7423. There is no cost to attend but registration is requested.
For those unable to attend the event, United Healthcare will host two Facebook Live broadcasts on September 18 and September 21, where beneficiaries and their loved ones can learn more about Medicare and get answers to top questions. To join, participants should visit Medicare Made Clear’s Facebook page. To learn more about Medicare through online resources, visit MedicareMadeClear.com.
