Mark Your Calendars for National Medicare Education Week!

For a fifth year, n4a is excited to partner with UnitedHealthcare (UHC) on the National Medicare Education Week (NMEW) campaign 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)!

We believe NMEW can complement or strengthen your agency's existing Medicare outreach and efforts! Local NMEW events not only ensure that consumers have all of the latest information at their fingertips, but also provide a venue to help raise the public profile of your agency and the important role that it plays in meeting the needs of older adults in your community.

So far AAAs in Indianapolis, IN; Richmond, VA; and Phoenix, AZ have committed to hosting NMEW events, and so can you! n4a and UHC have partnered to connect AAAs to local NMEW events and provide a Medicare Education Toolkit that includes event handouts, fact sheets and much more!
