By Space Coast Daily // September 17, 2012
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A new educational lecture sponsored by Health First Health Plans is intended to help residents of Brevard and Indian River C0unties navigate Original Medicare.
The “Ask A Local Expert” initiative will give participants a better understanding of Original Medicare without having to deal with out-of-town companies.
Health First Health Plans, which was founded in Brevard County by local residents, is headquartered in Brevard County, and is driven by its mission to serve the healthcare needs of the community.
Every day, Health First Health Plans representatives take calls from other local residents wanting to understand Original Medicare and how it will affect them and their families in Brevard and Indian River Counties.
To help understand the information that revolves around “Original Medicare,” Health First Health Plans is launching “Ask a Local Expert” public forums where Health First Health Plans experts will answer questions and explain the alphabet soup of Medicare Part ‘A,’ Medicare Part ‘B,’ Medicare Part ‘C,’ and Medicare Part ‘D.’
“As the only locally headquartered health plan on the Central, East Coast of Florida, we understand that we have a responsibility to residents in the community to answer questions about Original Medicare,” said Margaret Haney, Health First Health Plans President and CEO.
“We are proud to offer these educational seminars to enhance their understanding of Original Medicare.”
These lectures are not sales pitches. No specific information about Health First Health Plans details, benefits, or programs will be discussed.
This program is intended to meet the increasing demand among local residents.
The information offered in these presentations is from the people who know the area.
The next “Ask a Local Expert”session is being offered at 10 a.m. Sept. 29 at the Crane Community Center — Common Area, 1440 Mosswood Drive, Melbourne.
Seating is limited for these public forums, so participants are asked to call to reserve space or for accommodation of persons with special needs.
