Retirees Association

Free Medicare Seminar offered on Sept. 11

Chalk board with Medicare written on it

The WSU Retirees Association and the Office of Faculty Affairs are pleased to offer a free seminar on Medicare for current and retired Wright State faculty and staff who are approaching age 65 and those over 65 who are considering enrolling in Medicare for the first time. The seminar also will be helpful for those already on Medicare. Spouses and partners are welcome to attend.

The seminar will take place on Monday, Sept. 11, from 5:30-7 p.m., in the Student Union Discovery Room (Room 163). Our presenter, Scott Donahue, is co-founder of Medicare Simplified, a Cincinnati-based company that has assisted thousands with Medicare decisions. He personally has conducted more than 1,000 Medicare seminars. Medicare Simplified does not sell insurance and is not associated with any insurance company or government agency.

Determining the best path to take relative to health care at age 65 can be stressful and confusing. This seminar will provide a clear understanding of options available so you avoid costly mistakes.

The seminar will cover many topics including:

  • Information about when and how to enroll
  • Medicare Advantage Plans versus Medicare Supplement Plans
  • Medicare Drug Plans (Part D)
  • How to make changes to your current coverage
  • What to consider if you have an employer (or retiree) health plan available beyond age 65

Each attendee will receive a handout to follow along and take notes. Although the seminar is free, advance registration is required. The deadline for registering is Thursday, Sept. 7.
