Episode: APPRISE

Let’s face it: Medicare can be confusing. Enrollees encounter a lot of tough decisions when it comes to choosing the right coverage plan and sorting through all of the different benefit options. The process sometimes feels plastered with red tape and laden with unfamiliar jargon. And who can keep track of all the different policies and benefits for Medicare Parts A, B, and D, let alone all the private supplemental options that are out there?
Listen to John Vellone, APPRISE Volunteer, Melissa Hey, APPRISE Coordinator, and Jessica Lippert, APPRISE Regional Coordinator discuss Blair Senior Services, Inc.’s APPRISE counseling, a free service to help you understand your insurance benefits. The Pennsylvania Department of Aging created APPRISE to help Pennsylvania’s Medicare beneficiaries understand their health insurance options and make well-informed choices about their health and wellbeing.
