Overview

87% of seniors lose $600 on average by not reviewing their Medicare plans each year. Medicare is always changing, and it is important to be properly informed about your plan, and the costs that go with it. Case managers and social workers often see this first-hand with the families that they work with. Either their plans are too expensive, or they aren’t getting the coverage and care that they need. Each of our Medicare Advisors have helped thousands of seniors save money, and feel confident in their Medicare plan choices. In this seminar, you will learn how to answer important questions for your patients, and how to help weigh out the thousands of Medicare plan combinations. Updates to Medicare in 2017 will be discussed, as well as how to help prepare your patient for the open enrollment season which begins in October.

CEUs available: 1 ethic or core hour for social workers (GA NASW); 1 contact hour for case managers (CCMC) 1 contact hour for.
