free Medicare talkl

Gifford Medical Center is offering a free talk on Medicare insurance on Friday, June 29 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the hospital Conference Center.

Titled “Everything you need to know about Medicare,” the talk is for anyone who is currently on Medicare, who soon will be, or who has a parent or spouse going on Medicare.

Topics include why understanding one’s insurance is important, why participating in Medicare Part B is beneficial, and what one’s choices are under Medicare Part D.

“When making health care decisions, understanding your health insurance is vital. Medicare, which many of us have as health insurance or soon will, can be complicated to understand,” said Gail Bourassa, director of patient access and financial services at Gifford. “We’re hoping to help our patients make informed decisions by sharing what Medicare, and its various parts, covers.”

Bourassa, along with Gifford Patient Financial Services staff members Deborah Kendall, Melinda Mercier, and Michele Packard, of Health Connections, will lead the free discussion.
No registration is required. Call Gifford Patient Financial Services at (802) 728-2200 to learn more.

The Gifford Conference Center is at the medical center in Randolph at 44 S. Main St. (Route 12). Use the stairway under the green awning marked “Conference Center” or take the elevator from the main lobby/registration to the first floor.
