The staff at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center understand how hard it can be to understand Medicare plans, and they want to help. Memorial Hospital is partnering with the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), an impartial health insurance counseling program part of the Indiana Department of Insurance and funded by CMS, to present a free program entitled “Understanding Medicare Insurance”. Melanie Wilkinson, Southwest Indiana Volunteer Supervisor for SHIP, will present unbiased information on Medicare supplements and Medicare replacement plans to help seniors and their families make informed choices. Wilkinson will present general Medicare information and provide education on what changes can be made during Open Enrollment. A free dinner will be provided.
This presentation will be held on Wednesday, November 13 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Central. It will be held at Dale United Methodist Church, located at 1 West Elm Street in Dale.
