WalorskiU.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) Thursday announced her office will host “Medicare 101” educational sessions across the 2nd District to give Hoosiers the opportunity to learn the basics about the Medicare program, including enrollment, and have their questions answered by experts.

This year’s “Medicare 101” events will take place in Elkhart, Goshen, La Porte, Mishawaka, Peru, Plymouth, Wabash, and Winamac.

“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. “These ‘Medicare 101’ educational sessions are a great way for Hoosier seniors 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 one of these incredibly helpful events.”

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 begins October 15, and “Medicare 101” sessions will allow current Medicare beneficiaries and those approaching Medicare age to learn more about the program.

Marshall County residents can attend the session on Tuesday, October 15th at 5 p.m. in the Plymouth Public Library Laramore Room A & B at 201 N. Center Street.
