After attending one of the free "New to Medicare" classes provided by SourcePoint, I wondered if my mother had ever looked into her Medicare options to see if she could qualify for any of the Extra Help programs. I made an appointment with one of the SourcePoint insurance specialists and found that my mother could save over $100 each month if she changed her Medicare Supplement provider and plan. With the help of our insurance specialist, we were able to get my mother approved and moved to the best plan for her.

Insurance counseling is available to Delaware County residents at no charge thanks to the senior services levy. Ohio requires that senior service levies be renewed every five years, so that's why this levy is back on the ballot.

This is such a worthwhile service, and I know the levy provides so much more than the insurance counseling that has benefited my mother and me. I encourage everyone to vote "yes" for the levy.
