Which tests and screenings are covered by Medicare? How do patients find out from their doctors whether they should have the tests?
Those questions – and others – will be answered during a Senior Health Expo from 1 to 3 p.m. July 16 at the Marshall Senior Center, 14 E. Morgan, in Marshall.
The workshop, presented by Care Connection for Aging Services, is meant to educate people about the many health screenings and tests covered by Medicare at no cost to the patient, as well as give tips on talking to the doctor
A Care Connection benefits counselor will be on hand to screen participants to see if they are eligible for programs that help pay for health care. Many seniors are not aware of the many programs that exist.
The Senior Health Expo will include written materials to take home, plus giveaways and refreshments. The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be served at the center beginning at 11:30 a.m. Those 60 and older may eat lunch for a contribution, and younger individuals may pay the entire cost of the meal, about $7.50.
The Marshall Senior Center is one of 22 locations in 13 West Central Missouri counties served by Care Connection, an area agency on aging with a mission to provide opportunities to create positive aging experiences. If you have questions, please call 1-800-748-7826 or visit www.goaging.org.
