DANVILLE, PA – To help seniors understand all of their Medicare options, Geisinger Health Plan is now offering Medicare education sessions through the first week of December at locations throughout Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.
Seniors can review their Medicare coverage options and change plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), which runs from October 15 to December 7. Medicare recipients with standard Medicare can add additional benefits through private Medicare Advantage plans.
Recent studies show that nearly 60 percent of Medicare recipients do not evaluate coverage options. The Geisinger Health Plan sessions are designed to help older adults explore their options and choose the best coverage.
“Understanding health plan options can provide people with better access to care so they can live healthier lives,” said Roger van Baaren, chief sales officer of Geisinger Health Plan. “Even those who are at or near retirement and still employed can greatly benefit from learning about all the options available to them.”
The free, one-to-one sessions will be held:
Nov 16 09:00 Geisinger 65 Forward Health Center, 20 Diana Lane – Hazleton
Nov 17 9:30 am Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, 16 Radcliffe Drive – Scranton
