On October 15, the first day of Medicare Open Enrollment, Roseman University of Health Sciences will present “Help with Open Enrollment: The ABC’s of Medicare” as part of its monthly Neighborhood Health Series. The free 90-minute presentation begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be presented virtually.
Ideal for individuals new to Medicare, or that will become Medicare eligible this year, as well as individuals that care for these beneficiaries, the presentation will use an interactive approach to providing an unbiased base of information regarding the four parts of Medicare, A, B, C & D, to attendees.
Presented by Dr. Catherine “Leiana” Oswald, associate professor and assistant dean for academic affairs in Roseman’s College of Pharmacy, the program will offer a deeper understanding of the enrollment process surrounding Medicare as well as supplemental plans to help cover additional health care costs. Ways to save money in the process will be shared, and all guests will have the opportunity to ask questions to members of Roseman’s Medicare Call Lab.
Advance registration is required by visiting speakers.roseman.edu or by calling 702-802-2872.
In addition to the presentation, Oswald oversees a Medicare Call Lab on Roseman University’s Henderson campus. In partnership with Nevada’s State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), the Medicare Call Lab provides unbiased information to help Medicare beneficiaries make informed decisions about their Medicare enrollment and coverage options. The goal of the lab is to help beneficiaries enroll in the most cost-effective plan to meet their individual needs. Since its inception, volunteers and faculty advisors in the Medicare Call Lab have saved beneficiaries nearly $1.6 million. For more information regarding Roseman University’s Medicare Call Lab or to have your plan evaluated free of charge call 702-968-6615.
