FriendShip Group Lunch & Learn - Medicare & More
Thursday, September 26, 11:00 a. m. Youth & Activities Building
Medicare Solutions studies report 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. Each of our Medicare Advisors have helped thousands of seniors save money and feel confident in their Medicare plan choices. In this seminar, we will teach you how to properly analyze the thousands of Medicare plan combinations, and how to easily narrow down which ones are best for not only your finances, but for your health, and your lifestyle. Updates to Medicare in 2019/2020 will be discussed, as well as how to prepare for the open enrollment season which begins in October. This is very useful education that you won’t want to miss! Followed by complimentary lunch provided by Brannon Napier Elder Law Firm. RSVP with Rev. Susan Pinson, 404.634.3936, ext. 103.
