November Senior Luncheon To Feature Medicare Part D Information

MARYSVILLE – Join Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) for lunch on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, to learn about upcoming changes to Medicare Part D enrollment at the monthly Sterling Connection program. Local Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas (SHICK) volunteer, Lucy Papes, will be presenting this month’s topic.
