Greeley County Health Services is hosting a special community education seminar entitled, Navigating the Confusing World of Medicare and Retirement for Greeley and Wallace County residents on Tuesday, Dec. 6th at 5:30pm at the Senior Center in Tribune.
The seminar is free and open to all of the public. Greeley County Health Services has partnered with Eric Norris, Director of Medicare and Retiree Services at DPI Benefits out of Manhattan, Kansas to provide this educational opportunity to our communities.
"We hope that this seminar will help people that are nearing retirement or Medicare age, or are preparing to help a loved one through the process of Medicare enrollment," Katy Reynolds, Director of Human Resources and Marketing said,"It is such a complicated process with so many loop-holes. We hope this helps others plan ahead so they can receive the most out of their benefits."
The topics to be discussed during the meeting include:
There will be refreshments provided for the meeting, and all community members are invited to attend. For more information, contact Katy Reynolds at 620-376-4221.
