These seminars provide unbiased information and enrollment guidance to help you make the best decisions for your own unique needs. Your decisions and actions over the upcoming months will impact your health care coverage and finances for the rest of your life. Protect yourself against the common, potentially critical mistakes of underestimating the complexities of Medicare.

Our Medicare education seminar is a free service you simply cannot afford to miss.

Attend a FREE MDA Medicare Educational Seminar taught by staff Medicare Specialist Rick Seely.

TIME: 1–3:30 p.m.
LOCATION: MDA Headquarters: 3657 Okemos Road, Okemos, MI 48864.
DATE OPTIONS:

  • Friday, Sept. 6, 2019

FOCUS OF SEMINAR: 

  • Medicare enrollment and related timeframes
  • The parts of Original Medicare and how they work
  • Items not covered by Original Medicare and things that can cost you money out of pocket
  • Additional coverage options & considerations

Due to the restrictions on “educational seminars” imposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Rick will not be able to present plans and pricing from specific insurance carriers during the seminar itself.  Don’t worry, Rick provides personalized post-seminar day consultations via one-on-one meetings, ZOOM technology meetings or telephone meetings during which he presents and discusses specific plans so that you can confidently select the best options to either supplement Original Medicare or access private Medicare.
