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 Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island, 188,000 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 Rhode Island. "By holding meetings in convenient neighborhood locations across Rhode Island, 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 Rhode Island 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 seven cities across Rhode Island through June:

  • Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport, 1 Thurber St., Warwick; second Thursday of each month at 11 a.m.
  • Wyndham Garden Providence, 220 India St., Providence; last Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m.
  • Best Western Newport, 151 Admiral Kalbfus Road, Newport; first Wednesday of each month at 2 p.m.
  • Westerly Senior Center, 39 State St., Westerly; second Wednesday of each month at 2 p.m.
  • Ivy Garden, 272 Cowesett Ave., West Warwick; second Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m.
  • Courtyard by Marriott, 636 George Washington Highway, Lincoln; first Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m. (excluding May 1)
  • Jacky's Galaxie, 383 Metacom Ave., Bristol; first Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. (excluding May 1)

More than 60,000 Rhode Island 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.
