Walorski Announces Additional “Medicare 101” Session in Elkhart
Office to Host Educational Event at Elkhart Public Library on Oct. 29th to Answer Medicare Questions
MISHAWAKA, Ind. – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today announced her office will host an additional “Medicare 101” educational session in Elkhart to give Hoosiers who were unable to attend earlier sessions the opportunity to learn the basics about the Medicare program, including enrollment, and have their questions answered by experts.
Tuesday, October 29th
1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET
Elkhart Public Library
300 S. Second St.
Elkhart, IN 46516
“Medicare is a sacred commitment we have made to our seniors, and part of keeping that promise is providing Hoosiers the information and assistance they need to secure the benefits they deserve,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “For Hoosiers who were unable to attend a session earlier this month, this additional ‘Medicare 101’ in Elkhart is a chance to learn more about Medicare and have their questions answered by experts. I encourage all 2nd District Hoosiers who are at or near retirement age – or who are caregivers for Medicare beneficiaries – to attend.”
A caseworker from Walorski’s office and a Medicare specialist from Indiana’s State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) will present information about the basics of Medicare and answer constituents’ questions. Medicare’s Annual Open Enrollment began October 15, and the “Medicare 101” session will allow current Medicare beneficiaries and those approaching Medicare age to learn more about the program. Walorski’s office held several “Medicare 101” events throughout Indiana’s 2nd District earlier this month.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
