Video conference can clarify issues on prescriptions
MISSISSIPPI STATE -- An interactive video conference on Medicare D will be held at 10 a.m. on Feb. 13 in participating Mississippi State University Extension offices across the state.
Speakers will discuss the prescription program and remind participants of the part Social Security plays in the Medicare D program. This video conference is a service of the Stone County Rural Health Coalition, MSU Extension Service, Cahaba Government Benefit Administrators, Medicare and Social Security.
Stone County Extension Director Judith Breland said this free conference is designed for anyone needing to learn more about the Medicare D program.
“There have been many questions about the Medicare D program. This is an opportunity for individuals to listen to a knowledgeable speaker and get questions answered,” Breland said. “Organizations, individuals and family members who are trying to help seniors with this new program need to take this opportunity to view the presentation on the program, then personally talk to knowledgeable people about Medicare D.”
Contact the local Extension office for information on participating in the conference. Space may be limited in some offices, so call the county offices as soon as possible. For additional information, contact Breland in the Stone County Extension office at (601) 928-5286.
