Confusion over Medicare plans addressed
September 05, 2007
Are you confused by the Medicare advertising you see on TV, mail you get in your mailbox, and telephone calls you might receive?

Do you understand the difference between " Original Medicare" and "Medicare Advantage Plans"? Do you know what a "Medicare Special Needs Plan" is?

The VantAge Point Area Agency on Aging will hold Medicare Information Seminars throughout the area to provide answers to these questions and other information including tips on how to make comparisons before making any changes to your Medicare coverage during the fall Annual Election Period, November 15 – December 31, 2007.

The seminars, titled “Look Before You Leap," will be presented by Bev Scroggins, community services director of the VantAge Point Area Agency on Aging.

Programs will be held beginning at 10 a.m. at the following locations:

In addition, an evening program beginning at 7 p.m. will be held Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the VantAge Point, 2701 S. Bird, Joplin. Everyone is invited to attend. There is no charge and no reservations are needed.
