This unbiased, informative 2-hour seminar for new Medicare beneficiaries will be held on January 4 from 1:30 to 3:30 at Siouxland Aging Services, 2301 Pierce Street.

Assisting new beneficiaries to increase their understanding of Medicare is a combined effort of SHIIP programs (Senior Health Insurance Information Program), sponsored by both Mercy Medical Center and Siouxland Aging Services. Discussion topics will include who is eligible for benefits and timeframes for applying, understanding Medicareís benefits and options, supplements, Medicare Advantage plans, prescription drug plans and protecting their Medicare benefits.
