Learn about Medicare options at Security Health Plan seminars in northern Wisconsin

Seminars in Minocqua on Oct. 17

October 15, 2019

Medicare beneficiaries and people who will soon be eligible for Medicare are invited to learn how Medicare Advantage plans offered by Security Health Plan of Wisconsin, Inc., can help them afford and receive the best quality health care and services.

Free informational seminars are being held throughout October in northcentral Wisconsin. Medicare’s annual Enrollment Period from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7 is the only time most Medicare beneficiaries can change the way they receive their benefits.

Individuals eligible for Medicare can choose from Security Health Plan’s Medicare Advantage HMO-POS plans or Secure Saver Medicare Medical Savings Account. Unique features of each plan will appeal to Medicare beneficiaries based on their budget and lifestyle choices. For instance, varying plans include Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, worldwide coverage for accidents and emergencies, low or no monthly premiums, optional comprehensive dental coverage, support for members with congestive heart failure and no copayments for diabetes testing supplies.

At the seminars, Security Health Plan representatives will discuss the advantages of each plan type and explain when people are allowed to enroll, what is and is not covered, and what charges they will incur. 

On Thursday, Oct. 17 there will be two seminars held at Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center, Conference Room 1, 9601 Townline Road. The seminars are occurring at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. There are several other seminars in Antigo, Merrill, Eagle River, Park Falls, Medford and Crandon, and the schedule is available online.
