UnitedHealthcare To Offer Seniors Hispanic-Centered Medicare Education Seminars Combined With a Latin-Themed Fitness Program
Date:11/24/2009

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Next month, UnitedHealthcare will offer two free Medicare education seminars aimed at helping Hispanic-American seniors understand the basics of Medicare. Following the seminar, seniors are encouraged to take a free Zumba® Gold class, a Latin-infused fitness program that blends the rhythms of merengue, salsa, cumbia, rumba, and tango.

UnitedHealthcare will offer these seminars in Spanish so participants feel comfortable and engaged when learning about their health care options. There are approximately 45,000 Hispanic-American seniors living in San Bernardino County who are eligible for Medicare.

"Seniors will receive health care information in a simple, clear manner, and they can also actively participate in the seminar so they feel confident in their health care decisions," said Susan Morisato, president, Ovations Insurance Solutions - UnitedHealthcare's Medicare Supplement business.

The Medicare education seminars will provide information on how Medicare works, who is eligible for Medicare, and the differences between Medicare Part A, B, C, and D. Seniors attending the Zumba® Gold fitness class will find a low-impact aerobic workout tailored for the older adult. Seniors should dress comfortably and wear sneakers.

UnitedHealthcare, the insurer of AARP® Medicare Supplement insurance plans, will conduct two educational seminars:


December 8, 2009 - 1:30 p.m. at  Rudy C. Hernandez Community Center
                                 222 North Lugo Avenue
                                 San Bernardino, CA 92408
December 8, 2009 - 4:30 p.m. at  Fifth Street Senior Center
                                 600 West 5th Street
                                 San Bernardino, CA 92410
