Did you miss the December 7th Enrollment Deadline for Medicare Plans?
1. Relax. Most people will have the same coverage they had in 2011. If you have a Medigap or Medicare Supplement plan there is no need to make any changes unless you wanted to switch to a Medicare Advantage plan. 2. Check your mail. You may have already received your 2012 plan materials from the company you were with in 2011. If you have not received any materials you will be receiving them soon, along with your 2012 membership cards. 3. See if you qualify for additional benefits. Some people who have limited income and resources may qualify for Extra Help with prescription costs or have their Medicare premiums paid. These individuals may enroll in Medicare plans throughout the year, not just in the fall. 4. If you are stuck with your 2011 plan, avoid surprises. Compare the 2011 health plan benefits and costs side-by-side with the 2012 benefits and costs. Are the deductibles, co-pays, and out of pocket costs the same? Look especially at services you use most. 5. Check with your doctors and providers. Do they still accept your insurance coverage? This can change from year to year. 6. Verify your drug coverage. Check the drugs covered by your plan (called the formulary), make sure your drugs are still covered, and confirm your co-pay. Are they still the same? If one of your drugs are not covered ask your doctor if you can switch to another drug that may be
covered by your plan. You may also get a free, no strings, discount card from the State of Oregon. Go on-line to sign up at Oregon Prescription Drug Program. 7. Take advantage of preventive services offered free by Medicare. Medicare offers a yearly wellness visit. Schedule with your doctor free screening tests like mammograms, colorectal cancer screening, diabetes screening and maybe others depending on eligibility. 8. Know how to SAVE money on healthcare: use in-network providers to pay the lowest co-pays. Shop for the lowest cost pharmacies in your area. Drug are not the same price at all pharmacies. Try switching to you plan’s preferred generic and brand name drugs, whenever possible. Check to see if your plan has a mail-order pharmacy option. This often saves more money than your local pharmacy. 9. Know your rights. If the plan you have does not cover a drug you must have, your doctor can help you file a Formulary Exception to have the drug covered. If you are denied you still have the right to appeal. Be sure to appeal within the stated period of time. 10. GOT QUESTIONS? GET HELP! Your plan has a customer service line that may be able to help solve dilemmas. Call 1-800-MEDICARE, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In Klamath or Lake County, you can contact a Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) counselor at (541) 883-7171 x 123

Feature Holiday Festivities helped with meals and presents for many. Every Year the Klamath Basin Senior Center provides gifts to our Meals on Wheels and OPI (Oregon Project Independence, homebound) clients. This year, 150 Christmas baskets were prepared by volunteers and employees then passed out by several members of the Air National Guard of Kingsley Field, and City Councilman, Greg Taylor. The recipients were very surprised and grateful for this thought of Holiday cheer. To see their faces of appreciation was so gratifying it was almost tearful. 2011 was filled with change. We lost our previous Director, Rich Palmer when the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) forced Rich to separate from the Senior Center, but we have been blessed with two
volunteer managers Bob Shaw and Pat Harris. They have done a wonderful job reorganizing and dealing with the financial challenges and they are making progress toward hiring a new, permanent manager. They are trying to create revenue by renting out the Senior Center to groups, and holding raffles to raise money. They are also trying to raise money to freshen up the interior of the Center and have initiated a donation jar at the front desk. The goal is $10,000 for paint and carpet for the entry and dining areas; so far we’re at 10% of our goal. Our kitchen staff, headed by Ora Hoy, served a wonderful turkey Thanksgiving dinner for 268 people including 68 guests from the Klamath
(L-R) SSgt Jerry Mogle, Laverne Poteet, MSgt Ryan Rainville
Tribes. On December 16th, the kitchen staff also served 227 ham and yam Christmas meals. Probably the hardest job at the Center is in the kitchen, so many to cook for and satisfy. As always, our volunteers and employees continue to put forth that ‘Extra Help’ to anyone who calls, comes into the Center, or is assisted in their home. The Klamath Senior Center helps well over 4000 people a year with meals, transportation,
Medicare assistance, volunteer support, activities, and general information about anything. This acknowledgement is extremely small compared to the endless efforts of these people. A simple thank you is not enough. The Klamath Senior Center hopes you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we hope that 2012 brings you even more joy and happiness.
Please help pay for a seniors meal. Congregate Home Delivery All donations accepted and appreciated. Many of Klamath’s seniors need your help. Please mail your donation to: Klamath Basin Senior Citizens’ Council P.O. Box JE, Klamath Falls, OR 97602

Break out of the winter rut! As days get shorter and the temperature drops, it’s not uncommon for the winter blues to set in. All you want to do is stay in, curl into a ball, and eat. These activities may help shorten the winter and keep you fit for the more active summer months. Mike’s Fieldhouse Get out of the house and do something, like walking. Take your friends because it’s more fun. When one friend doesn’t want to go the other friend convinces them they should go anyway. Take your children or grandchildren, they can have fun too! No, you don’t have to walk in the cold and snow, you can walk indoors in a clean comfortable place. The large indoor arena has a hard surface track around a soccer field; 5 ¾ times around equals 1 mile. There is a sitting area with couches, chairs, TV, water, coffee, and sports beverages available. Showers and lockers are also available, but here is no Child Watch. The Fieldhouse is open Monday – Friday 7 – 10am. You can drive and park right up to
the arena doors and have little exposure to the cold. There is a 15 day punch card for $15 dollars or you can try it out once for $2. Children in strollers are free but all other children are also $15/15 punches or $2. YMCA members walk free. The Steen Sports Park is located at 4500 Foothills Blvd or call 541 273-1152. The Klamath County YMCA It’s more than just a Health Club. The Y of Klamath Falls has been the heart of the Basin. Memberships help support many community based programs that serve adults, families, youth and seniors with fitness programs. At the Y there is an indoor heated swimming pool, dry-sauna, and gym for personal training, weight rooms, and group classes. If you have a medical problem that can be helped through exercise, like diabetes, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, or weight control, try personal training, you’ll be surprised how quickly and effectively a personal trainer can change your life. It’s a lot cheaper than pharmaceutical drugs and has a longer lasting effect on every part of your body. The major side effects are an increased feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction, feeling of good health with energy to spare and, best of all, an ageless looking body. However, the Surgeon General Warns that these feelings can be addicting. The nice thing about the Y is you’re never alone. Come meet new friends, many having the same goals you have. Meet the trainers, they are the most wonderful people you’ll meet. They are there to help you!
There are many classes for Zumba, water Zumba, lap swims, aqua jogger,
Aqua aerobics at the Y swimming pool
aqua aerobics, strength training (no, you’re not too old for strength training) and spin classes. It’s all fun, the music, the movement, the people, the whole atmosphere. Membership fees are $23/month for seniors or $31/month for adults. Day fees for adults with a member is $5/day or without a member $6/day. You can purchase a punch card for 13 punches for $45 or 26 for $75. The Y is open Mon – Thurs 5 am to 9 pm, Fri 5 am – 8 pm, Saturday 8 am to 5 pm and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm. The YMCA is located at 1221 Alameda. For more information call 541-884-4149. Klamath Community College Community Education Classes. Want something else to fill your day or keep you looking forward and out of the winter rut? Try taking some classes. Klamath Community College offers classes in painting, Spanish, aromatherapy, Country Two Step, Night Club Two Step, piano, computer basics, driver safety, Microsoft Office, and yoga.
