Learn about Medicare plans through free virtual seminars

Following two years of growing popularity among members, virtual Medicare 101 seminars offered through Virginia Farm Bureau are here to stay.

“These seminars allow our staff to unpack how Medicare works and explain the differences between original Medicare, Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage plans,” said Tracy Cornatzer, sales manager for VFB Health Insurance division. “The seminars are educational and provide an excellent opportunity for those who attend to gather information that will help when looking for a plan that will fit their needs.”

Perhaps best of all, members can attend virtual seminars from the comfort of their own homes, and sessions can easily be accessed on a computer, smartphone or tablet.

The seminars typically last an hour, and a VFB Health Insurance representative will explain the plans. The presentations describe how Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement and other related plans work. Eligibility, enrollment periods and plan timelines also will be covered.

For the third year of virtual seminars, sessions now include a third time slot:

  • Morning sessions will be held at 10 a.m. on July 7, Aug. 9 and Sept. 22.

  • Afternoon seminars will be held at 2 p.m. on June 16, July 19, Aug. 18, Aug. 30 and Sept. 29

  • Evening sessions will be held at 6 p.m. on June 28, July 28 and Sept. 8.

To register, visit vafb.com/health/medicare-seminars. Alternatively, you may RSVP by emailing your name, email address, and the date of the seminar you’d like to attend to MedicareSeminar@vafb.com, or contact your local Farm Bureau office.

Participants can RSVP to any session and will be sent a Webex link to join the meeting of their choice virtually once registered.
