Attending a Medicare Outreach Event
Today was my first day of this year to volunteer in a Medicare outreach event with SHIP. We had 4 pharmacy students with us and we had around 20 people whom both SHIP and us served. Whoa...yes.. 20 people...it was a very successful event. We created mymedicare accounts, we explained the original Medicare, MA, PDP, & Medigap plans, compared plans, enrolled them in a plan, etc. Students and I learned a lot from the patients and heard what their concerns are and how complicated the decisions are when making the plan selection. I LOVE this program.
