Sourcewise, a community resource solutions nonprofit organization that helps with coordinating services and support systems for adults in Santa Clara County, will host 10 workshops in Morgan Hill beginning next month.

Through its Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program, Sourcewise’s state-certified staff will lead the 2015 Friday Series from Aug. 7 through December. Topics are Medicare basics, coordinated care initiative, understanding long term care insurance, Covered California and Medicare, 2016 changes to Medicare and its annual enrollment period, Part D Prescription Drug Coverage and Medicare Savings Program.

The workshops, which will be offered in English and Spanish at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center (17000 Monterey Road), will help participants choose the right option in health care for them.

Current beneficiaries of Medicare, persons who are planning to enroll in Medicare or are interested in learning more about health insurance care options will have the opportunity to schedule free, private counseling sessions as well.

“At Sourcewise, we collaborate with Santa Clara County, state and local networks to provide a streamlined approach to service and support systems,” according to a description on mysourcewise.com. “We empower individuals by providing access to information, allowing for personal choices and continued independence. We strive to create a community-based system of care that crosses city boundaries, income levels, geography and special interests.”
