Workshop is meant to educate people about the many health screenings and tests that Medicare covers at no cost to the patient, as well as give tips on talking to the doctor. The presentations also will provide information to equip patients to ask the right questions and have productive conversations with their doctors. A benefits counselor will be on hand to screen participants to see if they are eligible for programs that help pay for health care. The Senior Health Expo will include written materials to take home, plus giveaways and refreshments.
