Join Us at the Bradford Senior Citizens Expo!

Just a reminder to area senior citizens and their family members and caregivers that the annual Senior Citizens Expo in Bradford is coming up tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 4). The free event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Sports and Fitness Gymnasium.

The event offers access to a wealth of valuable information about issues such as health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, fire safety, financial planning, fraud protection, government services and more, all in one convenient location. Free health screenings will also be offered, and door prizes will be awarded. Lunch will be provided for all attendees and exhibitors.

I hope to see you there, but if you cannot attend the expo in Bradford, mark your calendar and plan to join us for upcoming expos in Kane or Roulette:

New Immunization Requirements for PA Schools This Fall

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has revised Pennsylvania’s school immunization requirements for the 2017-18 school year.

The new rules require parents to get their children fully immunized prior to the fifth day of school or the students will be excluded from school. Previously, parents had eight months to meet school immunization requirements.

If a student is in the middle of an immunization series and it is too soon for the next dose, the parents must provide the school nurse with a written plan, signed by their health care provider, within the first five days of school.

For more information, contact your health care provider, visit www.health.pa.gov or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH.

Attention Medicare Recipients

From April 1, 2018, through Dec. 31, 2019, Medicare will mail out new Medicare cards that no longer have Social Security numbers on them. The new card identification number will be a random mix of numbers and letters as a way to protect a cardholder’s identity.

Some things to remember:
  • A cardholder’s benefits will stay the same, with no changes to coverage. The only difference is the cardholder’s ID number.
  • A cardholder doesn’t have to take any action and does not need to confirm personal information. The card will automatically come in the mail and is ready to use right away.
  • The new card does not cost anything, and fees do not apply.
                   
Medicare representatives will not call you or come to your house. Hang up on anyone who calls you and says there is a fee for the card or that they need to confirm your identity. For more information, call the PA-Senior Medicare Patrol at 1-800-356-3606. Help is free and confidential.
