Community meetings designed to help baby boomers and other Medicare beneficiaries understand the basics of Medicare and make informed health care decisions

UnitedHealthcare will host a series of community meetings across New Hampshire to help baby boomers and other Medicare beneficiaries better understand the Medicare program so they can make confident health care choices.

Every day for the next decade, 10,000 boomers will turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare, bringing tremendous growth to the country's largest health insurance program. In New Hampshire, 231,000 baby boomers will turn 65 this year. The UnitedHealthcare community meetings will help these newly eligible individuals and other Medicare beneficiaries learn about their Medicare options.

"Our goal is to help people enrolling in Medicare for the first time or making changes to their coverage feel more comfortable and secure in the process," said Steve King, regional vice president of UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement in New Hampshire. "By holding meetings in convenient neighborhood locations across New Hampshire, we hope to make it easier for people to get the information they need to make an informed decision regarding their health care coverage."

At the meetings, local licensed sales agents who understand the community and the needs of local beneficiaries will present information about the basics of Medicare, including the different parts of the program, eligibility requirements and enrollment windows. An overview of UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans available in New Hampshire will also be presented. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions about their coverage options and how to find coverage in their community that best meets their health and financial needs.

Monthly meetings will be held in four cities across New Hampshire through June:

  • Hampton Inn & Suites, 195 Laconia Road, Tilton; third Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.; second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m.
  • Holiday Inn Express, 77 Farmington Road, Rochester; third Saturday of each month at 11:30 a.m.; second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
  • Residence Inn by Marriott, 91 Hall St., Concord; second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.; third Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.
  • Best Western Plus Sovereign Hotel, 401 Winchester St., Keene; third Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.; second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.

More than 84,000 New Hampshire beneficiaries are enrolled in UnitedHealthcare Medicare plans. With more than 10 million members enrolled in its plans nationwide, UnitedHealthcare is the largest business dedicated to meeting the health and well-being needs of seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries.
