Medicare Information Seminar

2:30pm / Humana Guidance Center, 803 Castroville Rd., San Antonio, Tex. 78237

Make no mistake -- this is an important time for people with Medicare. The Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan Annual Election Period (AEP) runs now through Dec. 7, and for those who have Medicare (or are caring for someone who does), this is an important time to explore what’s available for 2016. Individuals may use this time to choose a Medicare Advantage and/or Medicare Part D option for the first time or explore a new plan that may better meet their health care needs. Humana is hosting a series of neighborhood Medicare Information and Enrollment Seminars in November to inform people about upcoming changes and updates to Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D for 2016. One of the free and open to the community seminars will be held at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1 at the Humana Guidance Center, 803 Castroville Road, San Antonio, Tex. 78237. Licensed sales agents will be onsite at the event to provide free advice and help people choose a health plan they believe is best for their health care needs. If individuals are not available to attend an event they can call 800-611-1456 to speak with a licensed sales agent. The government’s Medicare website, www.medicare.gov, is a good resource for additional information about AEP or Medicare Advantage. Another valuable resource is www.Humana-Medicare.com.

Vanishing lighthouses on the Texas coast

In August, we challenged ourselves to visit all the surviving lighthouses of the original 16 that were built along the Texas Coast in the mid-1800s. Some still stand tall and strong in their original locations, others are only shells of their former glory. Our first trek was along the mid- to upper coast, from Galveston to the Louisiana state line, including the Port Bolivar Lighthouse near Galveston and the Sabine Pass Lighthouse, 35 miles southwest of Beaumont.
