Be Prepared for the 2019 Changes to Medicare Print E-mail


End of Medicare Cost Plans


Wednesday, October 10         1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Holy Nativity Lutheran Church
3900 Winnetka Avenue N, New Hope, MN 55427


Learn the facts about the new government regulated Medicare shift and what it means to you. Many seniors have or will be receiving notice in the mail that their Medicare supplement plan is going away.  Think Again MN is letting you know about this forum because so many seniors need to choose a new insurance policy and have just a short time to do so.  Holy Nativity Lutheran Church's seminar is the first one we have seen near Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center on what this change means for people on Medicare so we wanted to be sure you know about it.


gene montanezThe speaker is Gene Montanez, a long term expert in Medicare programs and supplements and member of the Robbinsdale Senior Commission.

Cost plans will no longer be offered in Minnesota? The fact is that over 360,000 Medicare policies in counties within the metro area will be going away. All current cost health plans will be replaced with Advantage plans.  What is the difference between the plans?

Open enrollment for new plans begins October 15th and ends December 7. Are you prepared? Do you understand your options? Attend this free seminar open to Holy Nativity members and the public.

The Senior Ministry team will be hosting a new program for seniors the second Wednesday of every month at Holy Nativity Lutheran Church. All are welcome.
