A representative from the Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program, the state’s official source for free, unbiased Medicare information and counseling, will hold “Welcome to Medicare” events on campus next Wednesday and Thursday. The sessions will help new and soon-to-be beneficiaries understand the basics of Medicare.
The sessions will cover information about important deadlines and benefits, Medicare advantage plans, supplemental health insurance and prescription drug coverage.
