    2018 Membership Renewal Time

    A Message from Mike: Once again it is Membership Renewal time!

    Yearly Membership runs from July 1st – June 30th

    Norwich Residents: Suggested $25.00 per year     Out-of-Town Membership: $40.00 per year 

    I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to make sure they do the following:

    1. Make sure you are a registered Member of the Senior Center if you are taking part in any activities. This includes using our Hairdresser, Massage Therapy, transportation, all classes and programs.
    2. If you are registered, please update your information (address, phone number, emergency contact, etc.) with your Membership renewal or as it changes throughout the year.
    3. Obtain a SCAN CARD, if you don’t already have one. PLEASE USE IT.  If you are unsure how to use it, see a staff member and we will gladly show you.  The statistics are very vital to maintain what we offer by showing usage of our classes, programs and services.

    Thank you and have a great summer!

     

    New Medicare Cards Are Coming

    The Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Services will be mailing out new Medicare cards to all current Medicare beneficiaries.  The roll out for Connecticut residents will begin in June 2018.  CMS hopes to have all new Medicare cards mailed out to beneficiaries by April 2019.  The card will have a new claim number (will no longer be social security numbers) and will look slightly different.  Once you receive your new card, you can begin using it immediately for

    your medical services.  All cards will be mailed to the address that Social Security has on file.  If your address has changed, please contact Social Security Administration to update.

    * SCAM ALERT*

    With the roll out of new Medicare cards, scammers are up to their old tricks.  Phone calls are being made to Medicare beneficiaries stating that in order for new cards to be received, personal information is needed (ie: social security numbers, identity information, etc.).  Please be aware that neither Medicare nor CMS are making any calls to Medicare beneficiaries in order to process new cards.
