Medicare Insurance Selection

Senior Services at Jefferson Hospital participates in Pennsylvania’s APPRISE program, which helps older Pennsylvanians and other Medicare enrollees understand their benefits. Counselors help seniors answer questions about health insurance policies and entitlements. They can also explain bills and Medicare statements. Counselors can help organize insurance-related paperwork, file claims, and assist with Medicare appeals. The program is coordinated by the Pennsylvania Department on Aging through its network of 52 local area agencies on aging. .

AARP Driver Safety Class

By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Founded in 1979, AARP Driver Safety has helped millions of drivers stay safe on the roads. Although the course is geared to drivers age 50 and older, the course is open to people of all ages.

The AARP Driver Safety course is available in a classroom setting at the James Bibro Pavilion on Jefferson's Main Campus.

You may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course, so consult your agent for details. You might also be eligible to receive a discount on roadside assistance plans.

AARP membership is not required to take the course and there are no tests to pass. After attending the course you’ll receive a certificate of completion that can be presented to your insurance agent for a possible reduction in your auto insurance premiums.
The classroom course costs $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. To learn more or register call 412-469-7100.

Senior Services at Jefferson Hospital is proud to be a host site for Tax-Aide, an AARP Foundation program provided in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service. Trained TCE volunteers will counsel and prepare federal and state tax returns for low to moderate income seniors aged 60 and older.
