Medicare update program planned

PIQUA — Rebecca Hayward, OSHIIP Community Liaison, will present a Medicare Update Program at the YWCA Piqua on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 2-4 p.m. The program is free and open to the public. YWCA membership is not required.

Hayward will answer questions individuals have about traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage (HMOs, PPOs and PFFSs) along with Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D) before the beginning of the insurance enrollment time which is Oct. 15-Dec. 7. The presentation will be followed by questions and answers and, if time permits, a one-on-one time for questions will take place.

“This is an excellent opportunity for those about to turn 65 or those already enrolled in Medicare to get questions answered,” said Leesa Baker, YWCA Executive Director. “We are pleased that Rebecca, an Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP) liaison from the Ohio Department of Insurance will be with us for this very informative program.”

Those interested in attending are asked to call the YWCA at (937) 773-6626 to register. For more information, stop at the YWCA Piqua at 418 N. Wayne St. The YWCA is handicapped-accessible.
