PRESS RELEASE - Televised Phone Bank to Help Those on Medicare and Medicaid

COLUMBUS – Cleveland-area residents on both Medicare and Medicaid are encouraged to participate in a live phone bank on April 28 from 4 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. for help understanding insurance coverage options and benefits. The phone bank is hosted by the Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP) and will be aired on News 5 Cleveland WEWS.

OSHIIP, a program of the Ohio Department of Insurance, provides Ohioans on Medicare with free, objective health insurance information and one-on-one counseling. Last year, through all of its services and outreach, OSHIIP saved Ohioans $24 million by helping identify suitable coverage options and financial assistance programs.

Call 800-658-5370 to ask questions during the phone bank.

For more information about Medicare and OSHIIP, visit insurance.ohio.gov/medicare or call OSHIIP’s hotline 800-686-1578. Medicare experts are available Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Follow OSHIIP on Facebook for more Medicare information.
