~ Important Announcements~

 

From the desk of Tammy Roehrs, Division on Aging Director ~

Master Athletes Have Superior Brain Function - years of exercise preserve cognitive abilities.  Study shows the benefit of exercising and being out with other people, enhancing the brains function....the message here...it is never to late to start.  We at the Division on Aging offer activities to get you started or many other programs to keep you motivated to stay healthy and challenged throught out your life.  It is all about your personal best.  Be watching for more information on our Senior Olympic Games ~ May 28 - June 13, 2014.  To be put on the mailing list for a Senior Olympic Packet call 895-4100.  Do your best and forget the rest.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have sent out important information regarding people with Medicare who think they need to inquire about the New Health Insurance Marketplace also known as Obama Care.  Frequently asked questions.  The Health Insurance Marketplace is designed to help people who don't have any health insurance.  You have health insurance through Medicare.  The Marketplace won't have any effect on your Medicare coverage.  Your Medicare benefit's aren't changing.  Be careful you could receive information through the mail or a phone call asking for your business.  Again, you already have Medicare.  You will not have to make changes.  It is against the law for someone who knows that you have Medicare to sell you a Marketplace plan. For futher clarification call the Division on Aging main office to speak with a Case Manager on duty at (989) 895-4100.
