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

COLUMBUS – Youngstown-area residents are encouraged to participate in a live phone bank on WKBN 27 scheduled May 19 from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for help understanding Medicare and Medicaid insurance coverage options and benefits. The Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP) is hosting the phone bank.

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 866-782-4581 to ask questions during the phone bank.
