Medicare Drug and Health Plan Review for 2014 on Nov. 20

It’s that time again!

Medicare open enrollment is Oct 15 – Dec. 7, 2014

Medicare advises that you review your prescription drug or Medicare Advantage health plan each year as your needs may have changed or the plan’s listed of allowed drugs and co-payments could change for the next year.

HICAP may be able to save you money

Registered Contra Costa County HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) counselors will be holding a special counseling event on November 20 to review your Medicare drug or health plan and help you decide on the best coverage for you.
Based on information you provide about your prescriptions, HICAP will identify the plans that will provide you the best coverage for the lowest overall cost. HICAP will also identify opportunities to lower your costs through various public or discount programs.

You can meet with a registered HICAP counselor to discuss the result and any Medicare questions you may have at our special open enrollment event at the Walnut Creek Senior Club on Nov. 20 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

You will need to complete a worksheet in advance and schedule a personal appointment for this event.

Maya Century Plaza 16 Raises Senior Rate

Last year we reported that the Maya Century Plaza 16 had a senior rate of $3 all day Wednesday.  I am sad to report that the Maya has raised its Wednesday  Senior rate to $4.  There is a $2 extra charge for 3D movies, the same charge that they add to the regular admission price.

 

Investment Discussion Group August 19

Greetings,

During our last meeting we asked you to complete the annual questionnaire regarding our group and how we invest in the Market.  we have compiled the results and will have data to share with you.  We discussed Preferred Stocks and Fred will quickly review that item.  Luke has offered to share his portfolio with us.  Luke has been a good stock picker over the years so this should be interesting.  The idea of sharing your portfolio give us ideas and insight as to how we may improve our portfolios value and thus improve our financial goals.  If you would like to share your portfolio, bring it on.  The numbers are optional, the percentages of allocations and the final increase in total value are the important aspects of our interest.

Hope to see you all on the 19th, Senior Canter Lounge Room.

Best Regards,  Wayne.
