Published: Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 9:34 a.m. CDT

The Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) is hosting a seminar on August 27 at Clarke County Hospital to answer common questions about Medicare.

The “Welcome to Medicare” seminar is free to the public and will review the many Medicare plans available, including Part A and Part B, prescription drug benefit (Part D), Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare supplement insurance. Those who are enrolling for the first time, those who are enrolled but have questions and those who are assisting with family and friends on Medicare are encouraged to attend.

“Everyone’s health needs are different, so it’s important to understand which Medicare plan is a best fit to assure that anyone eligible gets the health benefits they deserve,” said Mel Ammon from SHIIP.

Register by August 20. To register, call 1-800-351-4664. The seminar will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Clarke County Hospital Administration Building: 805 S. Fillmore St. in Osceola.

SHIIP is a service of the State of Iowa. SHIIP counselors are trained by the state and do not sell or promote any insurance companies, policies or agents. Clarke County Hospital is the sponsor for SHIIP in Clarke County.
