LOOKING AHEAD

• Many think of long-term care insurance as protection that is mainly for seniors, but that is simply not the case. In fact, almost 40 percent of those receiving long term care are under 65. It is important to learn about options early. Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s PrimeCare Advantage program will offer “Planning for Long-Term Care” on Tuesday, at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at Carriage House of FTMC-Garden Level. PrimeCare Advantage members and guests are invited to this program presented by the Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program. Dinner preceeds program at 6 p.m. OSHIIP.  Representative Lynn Heskett will cover: The cost of long-term care insurance and what service it will cover; What health insurance, Medicare of Medicaid covers/doesn’t cover and for how long; and tips on buying long-term care insurance. Registration is required. For information or to register, call 419-660-2546. PrimeCare Advantage is a program for individuals 55-older. Anyone interested in joining can call the hospital at 419-660-2544 and a membership application will be mailed.
