It’s open enrollment time for insurance. Insurance can be really difficult to navigate. The Medicare Helpline is a free information resource, staffed by insurance experts. These experts are there to help seniors and caregivers learn about Medicare. The Medicare Helpline will be open on November 29, 2022 for all insurance-related questions.

The Medicare Helpline event is hosted by News 3 and sponsored by Intermountain Healthcare. News 3 teamed up with Intermountain Healthcare and their myGeneration Senior Clinics to answer your toughest Medicare questions. This is the last Medicare Helpline of the year and Clark County community members are encouraged not to miss it. This is a rare and beneficial opportunity to speak with an independent, licensed insurance expert in Las Vegas.

Chris Raon is a licensed broker here in Nevada and he is part of the Medicare Helpline. As a recent quest on Talking Solutions, Chris spoke with Wendy about why community members should call on November 29. Enrolling in Medicare and choosing a plan is one of the most important decisions someone might make this year. And Medicare’s annual enrollment period closes on December 7, so now is the time to get questions answered.

If you do still have questions about Medicare, Chris urges you to call the helpline to speak with an independent Nevada-licensed insurance agent who can explain the complexities of Medicare in a simple and easy-to-understand way. Chris goes into detail about why a local, licensed broker is also your best option for insurance.

The Medicare Helpline can help prospective clients understand the basics of Medicare, including enrollment periods, coverage options, and the benefits that come with the Medicare Advantage plans. Save the date for November 29 from 5am to 7pm to call the Medicare Helpline at 702-637-0509. And listen to Chris’s chat with Wendy to help you know what to expect.

The original air date of this podcast was November 20, 2022.

5 Easy Ways To Manage Stress

Stress is a part of daily life. More so than it ever has been in the past. With instant messaging, working from home and other technological advances, we are always available. That means expectations of us are high, and patience in those waiting on us is low. Having to manage stress has become the norm.

Now we can’t hate on stress itself. It’s not the bad guy. In fact, stress serves a very important purpose. When a stressor in our environment occurs, our bodies respond with a release of stress hormones. These are the little guys responsible for those bursts of energy that wins the race, or the adrenaline rush you need to lift a car off someone. In small doses, stress is awesome because it makes us capable of great things.

On the flip side, stress that never goes away is bad. Think of stress like your parents visiting for the weekend from their long-distance home. At first, it’s great to see them! You feel all warm and fuzzy when they show up on Friday night. But by Sunday afternoon, you’re ready to kick them out of the car without even slowing down.

Chronic stress, that is stress that doesn’t go away, can have serious negative health effects. Chronic stress has been linked to things like diabetes, depression and cardiovascular disease. Some experts have even linked it to cancer.

Of course exercise is the first thing people suggest to bring those stress hormones down. Exercise releases endorphins that help you manage stressful situations more easily. Aerobic exercises like running, dancing, swimming or biking are some of the most beneficial ways to get those feel-good chemicals flowing.

But there are other, less rigorous methods to lower stress. So if you’re not a cardio buff like some of us (I’m NOT raising my hand here), here’s a list of other things you can do.
