October 5th Forum - Medicare Update

with Minnesota Board on Aging / Senior Linkage Line

SHIFT is hosting and inviting our members and the community to be part of this 

important overview and information session. 


More than 300,000 Minnesotans will be changing Medicare health plans next year, state officials said, when a federal law eliminates certain health insurance options in the Twin Cities and across much of the state.  

"The benefit that keeps on changing. The session will focus on Medicare and what changes are planned for 2021. Basic Medicare information as well as the updates will be provided."

Kelli Jo Greiner from the Consumer Choices Team of the Minnesota Board on Aging will make a presentation on the upcoming alterations to Medicare Programs and the changes in cost structures that will have a significant impact on our SHIFT members or loved ones that are currently retired, or considering retirement in 2021.  

Kelli will explain what the Medicare Cost Plan changes are, why they are changing and what the impact will be for Minnesotan's. This presentation is for consumers to help them prepare for these upcoming changes in Medicare and is similar to the in-depth trainings she is doing with the MN Dept of Commerce for agents, brokers and the Senior LinkAge Line staff.

Please join us for this important special session so we can ensure that our SHIFT members, and the community at large, are fully educated and prepared for making informed choices prior to when the Medicare enrollment period begins.

Date: Monday, October 5, 2020

Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: Online via Zoom

Price: $15 Members, $25 Non-Members

Our Presenter:

Kelli Jo Greiner is part of the Consumer Choices Team at the Minnesota Department of Human Services and Minnesota Board on Aging. She regularly presents at both community and professional conferences and events and is considered by many to be a subject matter expert in Federal, State and Local healthcare regulations, plans and the impact it has on Minnesota constituents. 

Please note that this is STEP ONE of a TWO-STEP Registration Process.

(But don't click the button yet. Read the entire set of instructions first)

Once you click on the button below and register, you will see both a confirmation page AND our booking system will send you a confirmation message to the email you used to register with us.

Step Two: The Zoom link contained on the confirmation or in the confirmation email will take you to a second page, which is the registration process for our Zoom Virtual Conference Platform which will ask you to re-enter your name and email to confirm. That second registration will generate a meeting invitation email which contains your UNIQUE MEETING LINK AND PASSCODE that will allow you to log-in to the meeting/call/workshop at the appointed time.

Yes, we realize that a double registration process can be a bit frustrating, however this addition step is to protect our virtual meeting from uninvited guests gaining access to the online classroom and causing any type of nuisance or disruption.
