Medicare topic of latest seminar

Published 9:14am Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Detailing the variety of Medicare options available is the purpose of the upcoming educational event, “Medicare and You,” at Christ Episcopal Church.

The seminar will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, conducted by Charles Reneau of Reneau Insurance Agency in Russell, Ky. Reneau is an agent with 40 years’ experience.

Medicare is constantly evolving and changing,” Reneau said. “What’s new and important each year is important to understand, especially during open enrollment period, which is now until Dec. 7.”

The program is one in a series sponsored by the church on issues affecting seniors. The first was conducted by Ironton attorney Craig Allen on “End of Life,” concerning legal decisions that must be made.

“We are going to repeat ‘End of Life,’ on a regular basis,” the Rev. Sallie Schisler, priest in charge at the church, said. “We may also offer some other seminars on how to choose a nursing home … things that are particularly interesting to seniors and children of seniors.

“I think these are conversations we know we need to have and sometimes there really isn’t a venue to have them. We hope that by providing speakers who are knowledgeable about these issues in a relaxed environment, it will be comfortable for people to come and talk about things that nearly all of us have to face. And the time to do it is before we actually need to do that.”

The event is free and open to the public.
