GeorgiaCares teams up with FVSU mobile unit to bring free, unbiased Medicare counseling to seniors around the state

October 18, 2019

ATLANTA – GeorgiaCares has partnered with the Fort Valley State University Mobile Technology Unit to provide free Medicare counseling sessions throughout the state during the Medicare Open Enrollment period.

GeorgiaCares provides Medicare counseling to help those on Medicare who are 65 years or older, and qualified people with disabilities under 65, select the health and drug plan that works best for them. With the computers in FVSU’s Mobile Technology Unit, GeorgiaCares can help people research and enroll in Medicare plans on site.

“This partnership with FVSU will allow us to reach more residents around the state and provide on-site access to information and resources,” said Christine Williams, GeorgiaCares Program Team Lead.

“During Open Enrollment, people are usually inundated with mailings and phone calls targeting Medicare recipients. With information coming from so many sources, it can be difficult to determine all the facts to make an informed decision on what plan is right for you. GeorgiaCares counselors remove all the guesswork and offer unbiased, free consultations.”

Medicare Open Enrollment runs from October 15 to December 7.
