Transplant Educational Meeting

  • Flinn Foundation

Access to medication continues to be a challenge for transplant recipients as they move through benefits that are new and that change as time passes. It is Medicare Open Enrollment season and also a time for employer-based coverage changes. Understanding and managing prescription benefits is the focus of this presentation. The benefit plan choices for the transplant recipient or soon to be transplant recipient can have long lasting implications and this presentation will start with a thorough review of coverage and benefits. Special attention is given to those challenging one-off situations that we often encounter and strategies are offered for working with Medicare, Medicaid and commercial plans.

Join New Life Society and Judy Maltz for a conversation on Medicare Open Enrollment.

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM - Transplant Recipients Open Discussion
10:30AM - 11:30 AM - Judy Maltz

GRANTFEST 2016

This year marks the 5th anniversary of Grant Kings passing. Through Grants gift, he was able to save and heal 50 lives. Proceeds raised from GRANTFEST 2016 will benefit New Life Society, an organization that was also apart of Grant's memory. This gives our family some comfort that in death he continues to help other. We decided to support New Life Society is a non-profit that offers support to patients awaiting a life-saving transplant and those who have received the gift of life. 

PLEASE join the family in celebrating Grant's Life. We have chosen to do a whole new event where we will have family & friends involved. Grants family would love to have you come and support GRANTFEST2016. There will be raffle items, 50/50, auction and merchandise. This is a way for Grants family to continue to heal as we are surrounded by those who knew & loved Grant as much as we did.
