UnitedHealthcare will host a series of educational seminars at the Jersey City Medical Center in Jersey City, N.J., to help baby boomers and other Medicare beneficiaries learn more about the Medicare program so they can make confident health care coverage choices.

Every day for the next decade, 10,000 boomers will turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare, bringing tremendous growth to the country’s largest health insurance program. In New Jersey, nearly 97,000 baby boomers will turn 65 this year. The seminars will help these newly eligible individuals and other Medicare beneficiaries learn about their Medicare options.

“Our goal is to help people enrolling in Medicare for the first time or making changes to their coverage feel more comfortable and secure in the process,” said Debra Kaplan Lewis, regional vice president of UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement in New Jersey. “Through these seminars, we hope to make it easier for people to get the information they need to make informed decisions about their health care coverage.”

At the meetings, UnitedHealthcare representatives will present information about the basics of Medicare, including the different parts of the program, eligibility requirements and enrollment windows. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions about their coverage options and how to find coverage that best meets their health and financial needs.

The educational seminars will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 18, Monday, Aug. 6, and Wednesday, Aug. 15, in the cafeteria of the Jersey City Medical Center, 355 Grand St., Jersey City.
