Thankful for SHIIP volunteers

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly acknowledge the efforts of UnityPoint Marshalltown SHIIP volunteers. These volunteers assist and educate community members about Medicare options as they turn 65 or retire.

They have assisted 1,838 clients in 2021. During the recent open enrollment from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, they assisted 1,408 clients by reviewing their drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans.

Kudos and high fives for Denise Fletcher, Jeff Harris, Elaine Hoffman, Marilee Lawler, Diane Olsen, Larry Schrum, Anne Schulte, Sue Turbiville and Bobbi Brandenburg. We look forward to serving you in 2022.

You can schedule an appointment by calling 641-754-5399. One of our scheduling volunteers (Alice Nicholson, Doris Hildebrand, Maria Hazen, Mary Claire Morfeld or Jim Reidy) will call you back. Thank you schedulers. We could not do our service without you.

If anyone is interested in becoming a SHIIP volunteer or scheduler, call Mark Day at UnityPoint Marshalltown 641-754-5093. Have a healthy and happy 2022.
