Johanns Invites Seniors to Medicare Seminars

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today announced a series of informational seminars across the state to assist seniors seeking information about Medicare, including the prescription drug program and Medicare Advantage, prior to this fall’s open enrollment period. Representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Nebraska Area Offices on Aging, Johanns’ staff and other local service providers will be on-hand to answer questions and provide information.

“The Medicare enrollment process can be cumbersome and confusing,” Johanns said. “These seminars will explain the various Medicare options and ensure seniors are able to make informed decisions. I encourage anyone with questions to attend.”

The seminars precede the annual Medicare open enrollment period, which runs from October 15 to December 7, 2012.  During this time, eligible seniors can enroll in Medicare programs and those already participating have the opportunity to change their current plans.
