April 22, 2011- 1st Financial Federal Credit Union located in St. Charles, Hazelwood, downtown St. Louis, and Wentzville is hosting a free Medicare seminar on Thursday, May 12th at 10:00 am at the Rec-Plex in St. Peters, MO. The seminar will be led by a representative from United Healthcare, an operating division of UnitedHealth Group, the largest single health carrier in the United States.

Medicare is a government program providing health care to people age 65 and older, and to select disabled individuals. It covers some basic medical expenses, but can’t be relied upon to cover all medical care costs. Understanding the many details of this coverage can be overwhelming and easily misunderstood. This free seminar, entitled Medicare Made Clear, will cover topics such as understanding how Medicare works, who is eligible, how to enroll, and even some pricing structures.

“Even with Medicare, it is still very common to be responsible for additional out-of-pocket costs. So we feel it’s important that our members who are nearing the age of eligibility be as educated as possible on all of the available Medicare plans and providers”, stated Michelle Rosner, Vice President of Corporate Communications at 1st Financial Federal Credit Union. She went on to say “As a credit union we are committed to offering relevant financial information to our members that assists them through every journey of life”.

The seminar is open to the public but seating is very limited. To reserve a space, visit, call 636-916-8303 or email Laura at Complimentary refreshments will be served.
