RANDOLPH – For more than 40 million Americans, Medicare provides their health insurance. Across the nation and here in Vermont, more Americans become eligible each day, leaving big questions about the federal insurance program and just what it covers.
Gifford Medical Center is aiming to help answer some of those questions for its employees and the public in a free talk this April.
“Medicare – Ready or Not … ” is being held on April 11 from 6-7 p.m. in the Randolph hospital’s Conference Center. The talk will feature a presentation from Acadia Benefits Inc. health insurance specialist Scott McKee on Medicare parts A through D, eligibility and resources.
“We’re optimistic anyone approaching age 65, or who has a parent or spouse approaching age 65, will benefit from plain talk about the often confusing subject of Medicare,” said Janice Davis, Gifford Human Resources interim director.
“This talk will help explain each of the parts of Medicare, what they cover and how they can benefit you. We will also talk about eligibility and Medicare resources, all with the goal of helping those approaching retirement age make informed decisions about health care costs and coverage.”
Light refreshments will be provided. Register with Gifford’s Human Resources Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or (802) 728-2248 by April 8.
