Brief: Medicare, State Health Insurance Confab at Divi

The Virgin Islands State Health Insurance Program will be holding its second annual Medicare symposium this week, with educational sessions for medical providers, Medicare partners, advocates and recipients, plus information and brainstorming sessions on improving the programs’ outreach to the community.

Representatives from the New York regional office of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, who helped put together the symposium, will be in attendance, as will professionals from the departments of Health, and Human Services.

Prescription drugs and Medicare, claims processing, stimulus funding for health care and end stage renal disease are a few of the topics to be examined.

The conference will be at Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort Wednesday through Friday. Registration begins at 2 p.m. Wednesday with a second registration at 8 a.m. Thursday morning. Call the VI SHIP office at 772-7368 for a registration form and more information. You can also email rena.sarauw@lgo-vi.gov.
