MEDIA ALERT

Virtual and in-person information sessions aim to educate Arizonans about the Medicare plan choices available to them

Why: Healthcare needs can radically change as people age, which makes having a keen understanding of Medicare options vital. With more options than ever before, navigating the complex Medicare landscape begins with being aware of what healthcare insurance plans will cover your hospital care, doctor visits, and prescription drugs.

What: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona is holding a series of free information sessions – both virtual and in-person – to educate Medicare-eligible Arizonans and Arizonans who will soon become eligible for Medicare, about the different Medicare health plan choices available to them and what plans fit their specific needs. Attendees will also have the opportunity to get their Medicare questions answered during these events.

When & Where: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona will hold more than a dozen free Medicare seminars now through mid-June for Arizonans to learn more about the different Medicare health plan options available to them. Individuals do not have to have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona health insurance to attend.
