2016 Medicare Annual Open Enrollment Events for Potter County

There is a vast amount of information associated with Medicare, much of it is complicated and it changes every year. If you’re going to be on Medicare soon, there is information available to help you make informed decisions about your Medicare choices. If you are already on Medicare, there is information that will protect your rights and may help lower your out of pocket expenses. If you are caring for family members on Medicare, there is information to help you ensure they receive the best care available under Medicare.

The Potter County APPRISE Program, a free health insurance counseling program designed to help Pennsylvanians with Medicare, has specially trained counselors to answer your questions and provide you with objective, easy to understand information about Medicare, Medicare Supplemental Insurance, Medicaid, and Long-Term Care Insurance.

Local APPRISE counselors will be available to assist Potter County residents at the following Events:

• Falling Leaves Outdoor Show: Friday, September 30th, 2016 and Saturday, October 1st, 2016 at the Courtyard Square in Coudersport from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm each day.
• Representative Martin Causer’s Senior Expo: Friday, October 7, 2016 at the Roulette Fire Hall, 12 Riverside Drive, Roulette, PA 16746 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Does McKean County have such information available? Will anyone in McKean County take the lead to have these meetings as they do in Potter County to help their senior citizens?
