Informational Sessions on Medicare offered at Lakes Region General Hospital

LACONIA — Belknap County ServiceLink and LRGHealthcare are teaming up to provide free informational sessions to community residents who are approaching Medicare eligibility. The sessions will be held quarterly, with the first sessions starting this month.
Presentations will be held at Lakes Region General Hospital on Tuesday, April 23 from 6-7 p.m., and on Wednesday, April 24 from noon to 1 p.m. Sessions are open to people turning 65 years old this year and will include information on Medicare and supplemental insurance options.
"We know there is a lot to learn and keep track of, so a staff member will be available to answer your questions (time permitting). You can also schedule a one-on-one appointment to discuss more specific topics and questions," says Belknap County ServiceLink staff member Crystal Tanguay, a certified Medicare counselor with the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP).
"We hope many community members take advantage of this great opportunity. We are excited to team up with Belknap County ServiceLink on this important topic," adds LRGH Community Educator Carolyn Muller.
To register, call 528-6945.
SHIP is sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and is provided through a grant with the NH DHHS and ServiceLink.
