Cassandra provided very important information about Medicare benefits and new chip cards that will replace the previous Medicare cards listing social security numbers. It is anticipated there will be new billing issues due to changes required for physician coding starting in January. It is very important for recipients not to give their identity information over the phone to scammers pretending to be from Medicare. It is also vital for recipients to review their plans annually as benefits change.  Helen talked about her endless efforts to educate and assist seniors, veterans, widows and their families with benefits. Many are unaware of eligible benefits.
