What’s New

Annual Medicare Review

Bay Aging’s VICAP program (Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program) is providing a series of presentations to review the Medicare program and beneficiaries’ benefits.  The presentations will cover the different parts of Medicare and costs associated with the coverage.  The program will also cover Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) insurance, Medicare Advantage plans also called Part C and Medicare Part D for drug coverage.

We will review Medicare’s Annual Enrollment which runs from October 15th until December 7th and how this is a good time for Medicare beneficiaries to review their Part C and Part D coverage.  Plans can change networks, costs and drug coverage, and it is a good idea to make sure you are in the best plan.

The presentation will also include programs that are available to help cover the costs of medical expenses and help to pay for your medications.

The presentation is 30 minutes long with time afterwards for Questions and Answers.

Bay Aging’s VICAP program also provides individual counseling and help comparing Medigap, Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans.  To find out more or to schedule a presentation for your group, please contact Lisa Walker, VICAP Coordinator at 1-866-758-2386 ext. 1234.

VICAP is a free, confidential service and is provided by trained, objective counselors. We do not represent insurance companies.

SeniorAdvocate

Southeastern Virginia’s Senior Advocate is a magazine devoted to issues of importance to Virginia Seniors.  To read the online version click on the picture at left.

Senior Advocate was established in Virginia in 2002 by Stephanie Smith. Smith’s experience in caring for her grandmother after she developed Alzheimer’s disease sparked her interest in issues involving the needs of older adults. Her hands-on experience providing care management for seniors and their families made her aware that these families were often ill-informed about resources available to help them.

Bay Aging’s Retired Senior & Volunteer Program (RSVP) proudly takes this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to our Volunteers.

Without you, our mission of providing many needed services to the seniors in our service area would be very difficult.  Your willingness to spend a few hours in service makes a difference in the life of many.  On their behalf we THANK YOU!
