We welcome clarification from any Icon view with more information. We spotted this plate on a blue Honda CR-V in Ada. (The monthly renewal sticker confirmed our birthday theory.)

Fortman Insurance May 19 educational seminar provides basic overview of Medicare

By Jake Dowling, Icon summer intern
Fortman Insurance Services, Main Street, Bluffton, will host a Medicare educational seminar at the Bluffton Senior Center at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 19.

"The event will cover areas such as eligibility, products enrollment and times to apply," said Branden Fortman, Bluffton office manager. "It is just a basic overview of Medicare in general."

She and Kathy Green, a specialist in medical insurance and "Medicare-eligible" products, will both lead the seminar.

"Anyone is welcomed to attend," Fortman said. "But it can also be family members of those interested in Medicare or maybe someone who already has Medicare but needs a refresher."

Those interested can RSVP by calling Fortman at (419)-358-4600 or by e-mail at bfortman@fortmanins.com

"There are many people who live paycheck to paycheck," Fortman said. "So we are very financial driven in helping our customers with getting the best deal medically."
