Helping Neighbors: F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Hosts ‘Medicare Enrollment Event”
FISH OF SANCAP, along with Area Agency on Aging for SWFL and SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) is offering a Medicare Counseling Event on Thursday, November 15th from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, at the Sanibel Congregational Church, located at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957.
As Medicare’s annual enrollment period is October 15 through December 7, FISH is offering an opportunity for Medicare recipients to review their coverage. Participants can meet with a SHINE counselor to review coverage, learn about Medicare changes for 2019, and how to save on Part D costs. No appointment is necessary.
“This session is critical for individuals to utilize. It extends the opportunity to make very important changes that individualize a Medicare and prescription plan for a person’s specific needs,” states Kathy Y. Monroe, M.S.G., FISH Program Director. “We are delighted to bring this offering to our community and encourage everyone who is enrolled in Medicare to attend.”
Participants should bring a list of prescription medications, including dosage, and their Medicare card. SHINE counselors provide free, unbiased and confidential counseling to Medicare beneficiaries, their caregivers and those soon to be eligible for Medicare.
For additional information, please contact Kathy Y. Monroe, M.S.G., FISH Program Director at the FISH Walk-In-Center, 239-472-4775. This program is a courtesy of the Area Agency on Aging for SWFL.
