New Centers Will Serve as Valuable Resource for Medicare Decision-Making

HEMET, Calif., September 27, 2009 – Inter Valley Health Plan (, a Pomona-based Medicare Advantage Organization, is proud to announce the opening of its Medicare Information & Vitality Center located at 3077 Florida Ave (corner of Florida and Sanderson), Hemet. The Medicare Information Center will be opening on October 1st, 2009, to assist in keeping local seniors informed and provide them with the tools to make knowledgeable decisions when it comes to their Medicare coverage.

“We must keep seniors educated on their health options as well as offer a resource to our current members living in the Hemet area.” said Inter Valley Health Plan Vice President, Cyndie O’Brien. “As providers of Medicare, we do all we can to provide information to help seniors make informed decisions. And, by offering our new Center, the local senior community can learn about important health topics too. “

During the Medicare Annual Open Enrollment (Nov. 15, 2009 – Mar. 31, 2010), California seniors only have a specific period of time to change their Medicare plan. If they fail to do so, they will be rolled into their current plan for a full year until the enrollment period. Not changing plans could be an expensive mistake to some as some plans rates are expected to increase.

With the new Inter Valley Health Plan Medicare Information & Vitality Center, Hemet seniors will have access to free Benefits Meetings every Monday thru Thursday at 10 a.m. starting Oct. 7th. These meetings are designed to help assist current and new Medicare recipients in learning more about Medicare during the Annual Election Period, to allow the best decision for each individual.
To make a reservation, please RSVP (800) 500-7018.

Along with the Hemet location, Inter Valley Health Plan currently has had a Medicare Information & Vitality Center in Claremont (Pomona Valley Health Center, 1601 Monte Vista, Suite 275, Claremont) since March of 2009, and will be opening another location in the High Desert (Victorville Town Center, 12209 Hesperia Rd. #E, Victorville) on October 1st. For more information on the Inter Valley Health Plan or to find the Medicare Information & Vitality Center closest to you, please visit or call (909) 623-6333.
