National Medicare Education Week Launches Next Week!
National Medicare Education Week (NMEW) kicks off next Friday, September 15! Don't miss your chance to get involved and ensure that your staff know the answers to tough questions about signing up for Medicare this fall.
Held September 15-21, National Medicare Education Week provides Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers with the information and tools they need to make confident, informed Medicare decisions—just in time for Medicare Open Enrollment (Oct. 15–Dec. 7).
For the fifth year, n4a is partnering with UnitedHealthCare (UHC) to help AAAs prepare for questions consumers may have about Medicare Open Enrollment. So far, n4a members in Indianapolis, IN; Richmond, VA; and Phoenix, AZ have committed to hosting NMEW events, providing a model for ways that AAAs can develop their own private-sector partnerships to educate members of their communities about their Medicare coverage.
AAAs can prepare for, and participate in, NMEW in a number of ways, including:
- Hosting, attending, or partnering with a local event
- Using n4a and UHC's Medicare education toolkit to promote NMEW on social media
- Taking our online course to brush up on your Medicare knowledge.
