Virtual Four Part Medicare Series

The PPLD and the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging have taken your suggestions and have developed a Four-Part Medicare Series to dive more deeply into Medicare and retirement.  Please join us as we begin exploring Medicare on a new level in 2021. Let’s face it!  Medicare can be confusing!  This series is designed to provide information to guide and support you as you make important health care decisions that affect the rest of your life! Each week will each focus on a different part of Medicare. April 1 – Session 1:  Medicare Eligibility and Coverage (Part A/B) Explains eligibility for enrolling in Medicare Parts A and B, how to enroll and when to enroll (enrollment periods). Explains Medicare Parts A and B costs, what A and B cover (benefits) and options available when something is not covered by Medicare. April 8 – Session 2:  Medicare Options: Medigap and Medicare Advantage Plans This course assumes that the attendee’s already have a basic knowledge of Medicare A and B eligibility, enrollment and of benefits and coverage or that they have already attended Session 1:  Medicare Eligibility and Coverage. Explains the 2 types of coverage consumers can choose from for additional insurance to go with their Medicare A and B: Medigaps and Medicare Advantage Plans, what they are, how they coordinate with Medicare and what coverage they provide for those enrolled in Medicare A and B. April 15 – Session 3:  Medicare Part D This course explains the newest benefit of Medicare, Part D, for prescription drug coverage.  Details how Part D works, how to get it, what the costs are for Part D, eligibility and how to apply for financial assistance with Part D costs for those with low incomes.  Will also discuss other cost saving options available to consumers enrolled in Part D. April 22 – Session 4:  Medicare, Medicaid, and Other Health Insurance Options – What you need to know Explains the CO Medicaid programs people with Medicare may be eligible for and how those Medicaid programs coordinate with Medicare. Also discusses how other health insurance options work with Medicare such as Employer Group Health Plans  (EGHP) for active and retired employee’s, COBRA, TriCare For Life, PERA, FEHB, etc.   The speaker comes from the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging Senior Insurance Assistance department, the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP). The SHIP has been at the forefront of this emerging boom to provide up to date, current insurance information.  These SHIP counselors are trained experts who do not sell or endorse any insurance products.  The Medicare series is designed to answer questions and provide information to help older adults make the most informed choices.   For information on Medicare Senior Insurance reach out at seniorinsur@ppacg.org or call (719) 635-4891 for more information or questions

Free Beginner Zoom Tai chi Classes

Introduction to T'ai Chi (& Qi Gong): Getting Started Right   Free Zoom Classes With several more months of restricted activities due to the pandemic, Joe Brady and Jacqui Shumway of The Tai Chi Project have decided to offer free Tai Chi Classes for Beginners via Zoom on Fridays at 10:00am Mountain Standard Time. Description: Experience for yourself the accumulated wisdom of centuries with the timeless exercise of T’ai Chi - many of the best of Qi Gong exercises artfully strung together. Improve your health and balance, feel more energy, and so you can sleep better. Learn to use your T’ai Chi to alleviate chronic stress, and everyday aches and pains. Step out of the ordinary and take the first steps on the road to a healthy longevity.  The flowing meditative exercise of T’ai Chi can be a powerful complement to medical intervention, and in many instances, may allow a physician to significantly reduce a patient's drug dosage or eliminate the need for medication altogether. Get the benefits of exercise you need without the wear and tear of other forms of exercise.  “T’ai Chi is often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion." There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems.” Harvard Medical School

Attention all HCBS Home Care Providers Virtual Weekly Meeting

13 agencies on Western Slope have joined together to request the state reconsideration of the recent reduction in home care reimbursement rate.

Virtual Four Part Medicare Series

The PPLD and the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging have taken your suggestions and have developed a Four-Part Medicare Series to dive more deeply into Medicare and retirement.  Please join us as we begin exploring Medicare on a new level in 2021. Let’s face it!  Medicare can be confusing!  This series is designed to provide information to guide and support you as you make important health care decisions that affect the rest of your life! Each week will each focus on a different part of Medicare. April 1 – Session 1:  Medicare Eligibility and Coverage (Part A/B) Explains eligibility for enrolling in Medicare Parts A and B, how to enroll and when to enroll (enrollment periods). Explains Medicare Parts A and B costs, what A and B cover (benefits) and options available when something is not covered by Medicare. April 8 – Session 2:  Medicare Options: Medigap and Medicare Advantage Plans This course assumes that the attendee’s already have a basic knowledge of Medicare A and B eligibility, enrollment and of benefits and coverage or that they have already attended Session 1:  Medicare Eligibility and Coverage. Explains the 2 types of coverage consumers can choose from for additional insurance to go with their Medicare A and B: Medigaps and Medicare Advantage Plans, what they are, how they coordinate with Medicare and what coverage they provide for those enrolled in Medicare A and B. April 15 – Session 3:  Medicare Part D This course explains the newest benefit of Medicare, Part D, for prescription drug coverage.  Details how Part D works, how to get it, what the costs are for Part D, eligibility and how to apply for financial assistance with Part D costs for those with low incomes.  Will also discuss other cost saving options available to consumers enrolled in Part D. April 22 – Session 4:  Medicare, Medicaid, and Other Health Insurance Options – What you need to know Explains the CO Medicaid programs people with Medicare may be eligible for and how those Medicaid programs coordinate with Medicare. Also discusses how other health insurance options work with Medicare such as Employer Group Health Plans  (EGHP) for active and retired employee’s, COBRA, TriCare For Life, PERA, FEHB, etc.   The speaker comes from the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging Senior Insurance Assistance department, the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP). The SHIP has been at the forefront of this emerging boom to provide up to date, current insurance information.  These SHIP counselors are trained experts who do not sell or endorse any insurance products.  The Medicare series is designed to answer questions and provide information to help older adults make the most informed choices.   For information on Medicare Senior Insurance reach out at seniorinsur@ppacg.org or call (719) 635-4891 for more information or questions

Free Beginner Zoom Tai chi Classes

Introduction to T'ai Chi (& Qi Gong): Getting Started Right   Free Zoom Classes With several more months of restricted activities due to the pandemic, Joe Brady and Jacqui Shumway of The Tai Chi Project have decided to offer free Tai Chi Classes for Beginners via Zoom on Fridays at 10:00am Mountain Standard Time. Description: Experience for yourself the accumulated wisdom of centuries with the timeless exercise of T’ai Chi - many of the best of Qi Gong exercises artfully strung together. Improve your health and balance, feel more energy, and so you can sleep better. Learn to use your T’ai Chi to alleviate chronic stress, and everyday aches and pains. Step out of the ordinary and take the first steps on the road to a healthy longevity.  The flowing meditative exercise of T’ai Chi can be a powerful complement to medical intervention, and in many instances, may allow a physician to significantly reduce a patient's drug dosage or eliminate the need for medication altogether. Get the benefits of exercise you need without the wear and tear of other forms of exercise.  “T’ai Chi is often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion." There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems.” Harvard Medical School

El Paso County Economic Development Webinars

The El Paso County Economic Development Department is excited to announce two upcoming webinars. The first webinar, on April 8th at 1 pm, will be a celebration of Fair Housing Month and Community Development Week. Please join us for a special presentation on fair housing law in our community, followed shortly by highlights of recently completed El Paso County CDBG projects. If you’ve ever wanted to see federal funding in action or learn more about why we dedicate an entire month of the year to the Fair Housing Act, this is your chance!  The second webinar will be held on April 9th at 1 pm. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the new state-managed rental assistance program, and how tenants and landlords can use it to cover unpaid and upcoming rent. Additional discussion will also be had on local housing and utility resources, particularly for seniors. This is an excellent opportunity for service providers and residents to learn about tools and funding sources available to address housing and utility needs in El Paso County.  If you are interested in signing up for the webinars, please feel free to view the notices attached to this email for more information, or email ericleonard@elpasoco.com to register for the webinar.  Please feel free to share the advertising image below, or visit El Paso County on Facebook!
