Susan Briles, Certified Master Medicare Counselor, and SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Outreach & Enrollment Specialist will be giving a presentation called, “Getting Ready for Medicare in Alaska” on Friday, October 14, at 12 noon in the Sitka Public Library.

This presentation is for anyone aging into or on Medicare to learn about Medicare Supplements and coverage options in Alaska, and to find out how to evaluate your prescription drug plan. Open enrollment for Medicare is October 15 through December 7, so it is important to prepare.

“Please come to the presentation if you have questions about Medicare,” says Susan Briles, Outreach & Enrollment Specialist for SEARHC. “We are trained to help you navigate the process of getting yourself enrolled and avoid common Medicare mistakes.” 

SEARHC is a Certified Application Counselor agency offering free assistance to all Southeast residents. Call 966-8883 or 966-8662 for more information.
