Special Enrollment Period for Medicare Part B without Penalties

As the state’s insurance regulator, the Indiana Department of Insurance (IDOI) is alerting Hoosiers over age 65 that there is a Special Enrollment Period for Part B of Medicare without penalties. The Special Enrollment Period is for those who were actively working and now seeking to enroll in Medicare because of job loss or retiring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Once enrolled in Part B of Medicare, enrollees will have a guarantee of Medicare supplement insurance and Part D drug coverage or a Medicare Advantage plan.

If you need guidance about whether and how to enroll in Medicare Part B, Medicare Part D drug coverage, or a Medicare Advantage plan, State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselors are available to answer your questions. You can call the SHIP helpline at 1-800-452-4800 or visit www.medicare.in.gov.

More about the SHIP program:

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) is a program provided by the Indiana Department of Insurance. SHIP provides free, impartial health insurance counseling for people with Medicare. SHIP does not sell insurance. Certified Counselors will answer questions and can provide information on all Medicare options to help consumers decide on the options that work best for their situation. Anyone can call the SHIP helpline at 1-800-452-4800 or visit www.medicare.in.gov.

If you are interested in speaking with a SHIP counselor for a story to alert consumers in your area who may be affected, please contact Melanie Wilkinson, with Indiana SHIP at mwilkinsonship@gmail.com or call 1-812-686-2729.

Welcome to the Newburgh Senior Center!

The Newburgh Senior Center

The Newburgh Senior Center is the “Daytime Place Where Seniors Congregate!”  Our mission is to provide the highest quality services for mature adults by fostering a warm, caring environment where individuals can both explore and enjoy a variety of activities to enrich their lives.

Our goal is that the Newburgh Senior Center will be the destination of choice for seniors interested in camaraderie, nutritious meals, education, outreach services, entertainment and adventure.  The Center has over 140 members, most of whom live independently in homes or apartments in Newburgh and the surrounding area.

The Center is open from 9 am to 2 pm each week day.  Regularly scheduled monthly activities include: cards, crafts, computer/Internet access and education, health and fitness activities, a reading room, bingo, live entertainment, Tai Chi, consumer education, volunteer opportunities, and even a kazoo band that entertains in the community.  Most activities are at no cost.

The Center is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) independent organization providing services to area seniors through grants, fundraisers, donations and sponsorships.  The Center is a SWIRCA lunch site.
