Helping Neighbors: FISH OF SANCAP and SHINE offer 2021 Medicare Info and Updates Workshop
FISH OF SANCAP invites you to Rise and SHINE – A Kitchen Table Series where you can learn about Medicare while enjoying your favorite cup of brew! Join the Zoom call on Mon., Oct. 26 at 10:00am as Medicare costs, coverages, and convenience are discussed. Registration is required.
Now is the time to plan for 2021, and Jennifer VanderMay, SHINE Community Outreach & Program Support, Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida, will educate and evaluate current coverages and options for 2021 as participants make the decision to remain with their current plan or to enroll in a new plan. Anyone with Medicare Advantage or a Part D plan should take time to review the Annual Notice of Change (or your Evidence of Coverage statement) which provide important changes to plan benefits, coverage and costs. For those dissatisfied with plan changes, enrollment in a new plan can occur during the Medicare Annual Election Period, Oct. 15 – Dec. 7 and will be effective January 2021.
Due to COVID restrictions on large gatherings and out of an abundance of caution for our community, this year’s workshop will be held via Zoom. Please register in advance for the webinar by contacting Susan Alexander or Anthony Morales at the FISH Walk-In-Center, 239-472-4775. Once registered, FISH will provide an emailed link and meeting ID number for access to the October 26 Zoom webinar.
