If you watch TV, read the newspaper, listen to the radio or use social media, you have probably heard something about Medicare and changes that are coming in 66 of Minnesota's 87 counties. To see a map of these counties, click on the following link.
What does this change mean to you? First, let me offer an explanation of each part of Medicare.
From Fairview Health -
We are here to help. Many communities and organizations will be offering seminars and classes to help you understand these changes and what you will need to do to get the coverage you need. Knowledge is power, so make plans to attend one of these free educational seminars/classes somewhere. Open enrollment starts October 1. If you do nothing, a plan will be picked for you. But if you want a say in what healthcare you have and where your money is spent, you must participate in open enrollment.
Coventry Senior Living will be offering a free webinar to help navigate the Medicare maze. Our speaker, Grant Rockwood, has been in the health insurance industry his whole professional career and has strong relationships with different government entities and carriers such as BlueCross BlueShield of MN, Health Partners, Humana and AARP. Currently he helps educate individuals and small businesses on all aspects of health insurance and Medicare coverage.
Please watch for an announcement coming soon with detailed information. For now mark your calendar for September 24, 2018.
