Videos can be an interesting and useful tool for reaching your audience and sharing important information. They can be used to spread the word about the assistance you provide, and help people begin to learn about Medicare even before they meet with you. Consider sharing them through links:
• from your agency website
• in emails to callers who are interested in Medicare information
• with community partners who serve your target audience.
Use this Welcome to Medicare series to educate consumers in your community. The videos are available in English, Spanish, and American Sign Language (ASL). (Videos may start with short ads inserted by YouTube. The ads do not represent any endorsement by GWAAR.)
