Letter to the editor: AgeWell offers good guidance on Medicare options

The mail coming to me every day from for-profit private health insurance plans advertising an alternative to traditional Medicare, is overwhelming. I want to be sure you know that AgeWell offers Addison County Residents over 65 help in determining your Medicare options. It is called the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP).

Call 1-800-642-5119. You can get a free consultation or take a class online.

I would love to hear any feedback if you call them. I hear that they are unbiased and very good in giving you your options.

I want to encourage everyone to write Bernie Sanders, Peter Welch and Becca Balint that you want them to sign a bill now in Congress that will ban private insurance plans from using Medicare in their name, The bill is called the Save Medicare Act.

Linda Andrews
