WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Medicare beneficiaries and people who will soon be eligible for Medicare are invited to learn how Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans offered by Security Health Plan of Wisconsin, Inc., can help them afford and receive the best quality health care and services.
Free informational seminars are being held in central Wisconsin during Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period through Dec. 7. This is the only time most Medicare beneficiaries can change the way they receive their benefits.
Individuals eligible for Medicare can choose from Security Health Plan’s Medicare Advantage HMO plans, Secure Saver Medicare Medical Savings Account or Medicare Supplement. Unique features of each plan will appeal to Medicare beneficiaries based on their budget and lifestyle choices. For instance, varying plans include Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, worldwide coverage for accidents and emergencies, low or no monthly premiums or no copayments for diabetes testing supplies.
At the seminars, Security Health Plan representatives will discuss the advantages of each plan type and explain when people are allowed to enroll, what is and is not covered, and what charges they will incur.
Area seminars for Wisconsin Rapids will be scheduled on Nov. 7 at the Hotel Mead, 451 E. Grand Ave., from 10AM – 1PM, Nov. 14 from 10 AM – 1PM at the Marshfield Clinic Center, 220 24th St. South, and Dec. 1 at the Hotel Mead.
