Technology Skills Help Senior Citizens Save $$$$

BHS Middle and High School EAST students teamed up to assist in a SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program).

Helping seniors citizens navigate the Internet resulted in major savings on Medicare Drug Plans for Brinkley area senior citizens. BHS Middle and High School EAST students teamed up to offer their help in this effort when they organized and carried out a SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) on November 21st.

 

Student volunteers entered data for the seniors and then printed out comparisons of the various drug plans. The students had been trained by Pat Holtoff, who was in attendance on the day of the event to help senior citizens change their drug plans as a result of the information gained that day. Refreshments were provided by the EAST students. As an extra bonus, students made refrigerator magnets and billfold drug lists that would be useful in case of emergency for each person in attendance.
