HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Forrest General Hospital is hosting a free educational session April 18 to answer questions and provide information about Medicare.

Information will be shared about Medicare, Medicare Supplemental Plans, Medicare Advantage Plans, Medicare Prescription Drug Plans, and how to enroll in the plan of your choice.

“We encourage people in the community to attend one of our Educational Sessions. We welcome the opportunity to share information and explain the different plans that are available. This also allows us to answer questions to help participants understand how Medicare and other plans work together to pay medical claims and prescription drug purchases,” said Pat Riley, director of insurance operations at Forrest General.

The next meeting will be located at 106 Madison Plaza, Suite A in Hattiesburg on April 18 at 10 a.m.
