Meeting Summary:

There are changes to Medicare each year which may determine what plan best fits your needs for the upcoming year. Annual deductibles, premiums, new benefits, formularies and networks may be very different in 2023. It can be overwhelming, but we’re here to help.

Join the Seniors’ Council of Douglas County and Desiree Boelte, the SHIP Program Manager for the Denver Regional Council of Governments, to learn about your plan options for 2023 and how a SHIP volunteer can help you make an informed decision. SHIP volunteers are trained by Medicare and provide accurate and unbiased information – no sales pitch! This is our most popular presentation, so arrive early to ensure a seat.
