Medigap Changes, Health Care Reform Sure to Affect Many Seniors

by Dave on August 31, 2010

For American seniors, their retirement years are supposed to be about relaxing, getting out, and enjoying the freedom they’ve earned. In reality, though, even retirement has its challenges, especially when it comes to health insurance.

Linda Nemes, senior insurance research analyst for the Delaware Department of Insurance, will be the featured guest speaker at the September meeting of the Sussex County Advisory Committee for the Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities.

Ms. Nemes will discuss recent changes to Medicare supplemental insurance, also known as Medigap, sold by private insurers to Medicare recipients. The plans provide gap coverage between the amount paid by Medicare and the total amount billed. Ms. Nemes also will discuss this year’s national health care legislation, and the anticipated effects the new reforms will have on senior citizens.

The Advisory Committee invites the public to attend the committee’s next meeting at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 20, 2010, at the Roxana CHEER Center, 34314 Pyle Center Road, Roxana. An open discussion will follow the featured presentation.

The Sussex County Advisory Committee for the Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities is an 11-member panel established by the Sussex County Council to be an advocate for programs and policies that benefit older and disabled residents. The committee meets every other month, in January, March, May, July, September and November. All meetings are open to the public.

The Advisory Committee’s mission is to increase dialogue, make recommendations to Sussex County Council, and to give support, assistance and advice on significant issues and programs that may affect the lives of the county’s aging and adults with physical disabilities populations.
