Westview Health Care Center continued their series of free informative community health education programs on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 with Judith Stein, Executive Director of the Center for Medicare Advocacy. Ms. Stein, Juris Doctor, was invited to the facility to deliver a lecture concerning the evolving system of Medicare.
The sold out audience consisted of local residents of Northeastern Connecticut, many of whom are currently enrolled in Medicare and seeking guidance for making informed decisions concerning their coverage.
With over four decades of experience working within elder law and Medicare advocacy, Ms. Stein’s understanding of the often-times confusing and technical nature of Medicare was delivered to the audience in a succinctly conversant manner. Using various real-life examples derived from her personal experience and client cases, Ms. Stein broke down the various components of Medicare services including health care providers, plans, coverage and prescriptions.
“We’re privileged to have Ms. Stein join us for an informative and relevant discussion concerning Medicare,” stated David T. Panteleakos, Westview Administrator. “The task of navigating the seemingly ever-changing world of Medicare is daunting. Ms. Stein’s expertise and advocacy program is an invaluable service to our aging community.”
Ms. Stein founded the Center for Medicare Advocacy, Inc. in 1986 and devotes herself to assisting people in attaining access to quality health care while providing legal analysis, education and advocacy.
