November 05, 2012

Macon, GA – Coliseum is offering classes specifically for senior adults: Medicare Made Easy and Advanced Directives. Join us at Coliseum Northside Hospital, 400 Charter Blvd. on November 12, 2012, 10-11:30am and 12-1pm, respectively. Free lunch will be available to those who plan to attend for both classes.

The Medicare Made Easy class provides a full overview of the Medicare health insurance program, changes in deductibles, co-pays and premiums, and other coverage changes. Attendees will learn the differences between Part A and Part B and what services each covers. They will learn about home health, hospice, and skilled nursing covered services. The program provides information on financial assistance to qualifying Medicare enrollees. Resources are also provided to assist participants make informed decisions for purchasing Medicare supplemental plans, long term care insurance, and Medicare Part D drug plans.

The Advanced Directives class highlights the basics about final health care issues, and provides legal forms to record your wishes. Making decisions about your final health care means a lot to the people who matter the most to you. They're the ones who will honor your wishes -- or live with the choices they made because you never made them for yourself. Have you thought about talking to your loved ones -- perhaps even appointed someone, a personal agent, to make decisions for you -- but don't know what to do next? Then join us for this free program that is consistent with the Georgia law. You do not need a lawyer to create your Directive for Final Healthcare – a document that combines the Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney. This workshop will provide you with all you need.
