Farm Bureau members are invited to participate in a series of free virtual Medicare 101 Educational Seminars scheduled through August.
Sessions typically last an hour, and a health insurance representative of VFB’s Health Insurance division will present the material. Participants can RSVP to the session of their choice and will be sent a WebEx link to join that meeting virtually.
To RSVP, email your name, county, email address, and the date of your chosen seminar to VirginiaFarmBureauHealthInsurance@vafb.com. A WebEx link will be sent from Virginia Farm Bureau Health Insurance.
July seminars are planned for July 8 and 16 at 2 p.m. and July 30 at 6 p.m. An Aug. 25 seminar at 2 p.m. also is scheduled.
Virginia Farm Bureau has facilitated Medicare seminars since 2016, but this is the first year the sessions will be held online due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tracy Cornatzer, sales manager for VFB Health Insurance division, said access to health information is more crucial than ever.
“We didn’t want COVID-19 to prevent us from holding them this year,” Cornatzer said. “We first want to educate people on how Medicare works, and second, let them know that Farm Bureau is here to help them.”
If you are unable to attend and have questions about Medicare or need assistance signing up for a Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage, or Part D plan, contact a local Farm Bureau office or call 800-229-7779. You also can request a quote at vafb.com/health.
