BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The East Baton Rouge Parish school system has scheduled a series of two-hour seminars over the next month to explain to an estimated 2,900 Medicare-eligible retirees the benefits of switching to a Medicare Advantage plan.
In May, the school board voted to select Humana to serve retirees on its Medicare Advantage plan.
The board allowed retirees who don't want to go with Humana to continue to get their secondary insurance through the school system's self-insured group plan administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana.
The Advocate reports the first 10 seminars are scheduled Monday through Thursday, and the second set of 10 seminars are scheduled Sept. 9-12.
All seminars are taking place at the Instructional Resource Center.
