April 2023 Events and News

From the President’s Crayon

Hi Seniors

Don’t get me started about this continuing snow….all I can say is that Mother Nature is playing a cruel April Fools joke on us. PLEASE STOP!

Let’s think of happier things…how about our upcoming final two musical performers, courtesy of Mountain Town Music.  Both Shannon Runyon and Rich Wyman in one month?  These are performances not to be missed! Read about it below, and even if you can’t make it in for lunch on April 3 for Shannon or April 17 for Rich, come on by at 1:30 to listen to these two fantastic musicians!

And read about our call for volunteers as well…we are growing by leaps and bounds and have so many volunteer opportunities available.  Step up and support your Senior Center.

Think Spring!!!

Cheryl Soshnik. President

Committee Update – April Newsletter

by Francie McNally

March was another busy month for the Woodside II Working Senior Center Committee.

We have been involved, along with our Board, on successful and informative meetings with:

  • Tonja Hanson-new County Council member and our Senior Liaison with the County Council and Janna Young, Summit County Deputy Manager met with our committee to listen and get to know us, and our needs and wants.
  • Our meeting with Jason Glidden and Tana Toley scheduled for March 21 was cancelled. We were going to review a conceptual project study report on the new Senior Center, but the architect did not have the conceptual plans completed. Jason will reschedule this meeting as soon as he gets the design studies.

We will continue to let you know about our progress and please ask questions!

Medicare Home Health Care Fraud

If you have Original Medicare, you should receive a Medicare Summary Notice (MSN). If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, you should receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB). To prevent and detect home health fraud, you should read these Medicare notices thoroughly when you receive them. You should report any suspicious charges. You should also protect your Medicare number and only share it with health care providers and other trusted individuals. Here are some examples of potential home health fraud or abuse to watch for: You see charges on your MSN or EOB for services that you did not receive, that were not prescribed by your doctor, or when you do not meet Medicare’s homebound criteria.

  • You see charges on your MSN or EOB for services that you did not receive, that were not prescribed by your doctor, or when you do not meet Medicare’s homebound criteria.
  • You are enrolled in home health services by a doctor you do not know.
  •  A home health agency offers you “free” groceries or “free” transportation in exchange for personal information or to switch to a different home health agency.
  •  You are charged a copayment for home health services.
  •  You are asked to sign forms saying that you received home health services that you did not receive.

If you think you may have experienced potential Medicare fraud, errors, or abuse, you should contact your local Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP).

Who to contact for more information:

First, speak with your doctor or a hospital discharge planner if you need home health. Contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) to learn more about Medicare coverage and costs for home health. SHIP counselors provide unbiased Medicare counseling. Contact your Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) if you may have experienced Medicare fraud, errors, or abuse. Contact 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) or go to medicare.gov for a list of Medicare-approved home health agencies. Contact your Medicare Advantage Plan.
