The Senior Health Insurance Options Seminar will be available online or by phone on Thursday, November 12 at 10:30 AM and again at 6:00 PM. As restrictions on in-person gatherings remain in place due to COVID-19, "we will continue to adjust service delivery to ensure the safety of residents served and our Center of Concern family during these unprecedented times," said Executive Director John McNabola.

Through these confidential sessions, older adults can understand their specific rights and options without risk of any offers to sell or solicit any type of insurance.

Medicare's Open Enrollment Period is from October 15 through December 7. The Center of Concern is committed to providing objective health insurance information to older adults through this free online seminar and individual counseling sessions.
