Dold Holds Telephone Town Hall with Seniors and Answers Questions About Medicare Benefits

From the office of Rep. Robert Dold (Ill., 10th District)…

WASHINGTON, DC – Earlier today, U.S. Congressman Robert J. Dold (IL-10) hosted a telephone town hall with seniors from Illinois’ 10th District. On the call, a representative from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) was on hand to provide information and help answer questions about the different benefits available to seniors.

“Providing the latest information on Medicare benefits to the people I represent is one of my priorities,” said Dold. “I want to thank Brenda Delgado from CMS for her expertise on Medicare and for taking the time to answer questions. It is important to hear directly from constituents and to ensure that they have access to the latest resources that can help them navigate the options provided to them through Medicare. I want to encourage anyone with questions on their Medicare benefits to call my Northbrook office at 847-272-0404.”

Dold called over 30,000 seniors throughout the district to remind them that Medicare Open Enrollment ends on December 7th and to make sure they were aware of free services offered through Medicare. Brenda Delgado from the CMS office in Chicago was also on the call to give a comprehensive overview of Medicare, help answer questions on different plans and services, and to notify seniors of any changes they will be seeing in their plans.

For those individuals who are looking for further information, or to speak to someone about an issue they are facing, they can reach out to Bryan Reed in the Northbrook office at 847-272-0404. CMS can also be reached at 1-800-MEDICARE or 1-800-633-4227.

Rep. Dold is a third-generation resident of the 10th District of Illinois. As a small business owner, he has faced many of the challenges confronting business leaders today and is using that firsthand experience in Washington to help find ways to create more jobs and strengthen the economy.

Also, last month, U.S. Congressman Robert J. Dold and Senator Mark Kirk hosted a live Facebook town hall. Questions were solicited online and the town hall lasted for 30 minutes. This was the first of its kind recorded in the Senate Recording Studio, and more Facebook town halls are planned for 2012. To watch the town hall
