DETROIT, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Understanding Medicare just got a little easier. During the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period, Medicare beneficiaries struggle to understand their current coverage and whether to select different coverage options. Detroit-based Health Alliance Plan (HAP) will provide a free DVD to anyone seeking information about Medicare and how to approach making the annual decision. Thousands of beneficiaries also will receive plenty of individual attention in local workshops.

Local experts, including a physician, a pharmacist and a representative from the Area Agency on Aging 1-B Medicare Medicaid Assistance Program, explain the basics of Medicare, options for extra coverage, how to choose a plan and more.
