AVH Offers Medicare Overview

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Natrona Heights, Pa., – Allegheny Valley Hospital’s (AVH) PriorityCare program has partnered with APPRISE and Family Services of Western Pennsylvania to offer “Medicare 101: An Overview” on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Charles W. Young Conference Center at AVH’s main campus in Natrona Heights. Understanding Medicare, what it pays for and what it doesn’t is the first step in making the best decision for you.

The information will help you make an informed decision about the best plan for your needs. Bill McKendree, lead APPRISE counselor from Family Services provides an overview of the Medicare system and benefits along with a review of the options open to you. His presentation includes an update about changes this year and what’s anticipated to change for next year. This is an excellent resource for anyone turning 65, considering changing policies or confused by the choices. Space is limited to allow time for individual questions.

APPRISE is the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for Pennsylvania’s Medicare beneficiaries. The Pennsylvania Department of Aging created APPRISE to help Pennsylvanians with Medicare understand their health insurance options and help them make sound decisions about what is best for them.

PriorityCare is a free membership program offered by AVH to all adults age 55 or older. Call 724-226-7339 or e-mail prioritycare@wpahs.org to register.
