Petal to host Medicare meet Feb. 12


The City of Petal will host the Care Management Organization’s first Municipal-Sponsored Medicare Informational Seminar from 5:30-7 p.m.  Tuesday, Feb. 12, at the Petal Civic Center, 712 S. Main St. in Petal. 

 “Medicare and Medicare Benefit Options are confusing for many people,” said Stephen Ryan, director of Care Management Organization. “As a result, the Care Management Organization helps people make sense of their options through free one-on-one consultations and informational seminars. CMO is thankful to the City of Petal, especially Mayor Hal Marx, for providing CMO with a new platform to educate and inform citizens of the Pine Belt about their Medicare options.”

 The Care Management Organization is a division of Forrest General Hospital and the Hattiesburg Clinic. Its licensed insurance agents specialize in Medicare, Medicare benefit options (including Medicare Supplemental Plans and Medicare Advantage Plans), individual health insurance, and Medicare Part D prescription drug plans.

 All Medicare Informational Seminars are free and open to the public. To RSVP, please call 601-288-8119.
