National Medicare Education Week is Sept. 15-21Posted by Medicare Made Clear
Did you know? According to a 2013 UnitedHealthcare survey, most adults can’t identify what Medicare Parts A, B, C and D cover. Also, 70% of baby boomers describe their understanding of Medicare as “fair” or “poor.”
That’s why UnitedHealthcare created National Medicare Education Week (Sept. 15-21) with one goal in mind—to help make Medicare easier to understand.
During National Medicare Education Week, UnitedHealthcare hosts educational events around the country. Attendees may listen to a presentation, get educational materials that they can take home and ask questions face-to-face with local Medicare specialists.
