XBL 0850 - Positively Smart

People set goals or at least have an idea in their heads about what it means to be successful. When they encounter setbacks or barriers, they frequently respond in one of two ways: they get discouraged and give up; or, they push themselves harder to achieve their goals or move towards their vision of success. In either case, the way they talk to themselves makes progress even less likely. This workshop will help participants understand how they are unintentionally getting in their own way and how their own brain can be working against them. The workshop will then provide participants with the tools to turn this situation around and use the natural brain processes to their advantage. Participants who regularly apply these strategies will quickly find that achieving their vision of success is easier and their quality of life is improved.

XNC 8109 - Helping Clients Understand Their Medicare Benefits

A recent study indicated that over 90% of Medicare beneficiaries do not understand the system and the benefits and coverage it provides them.

In this interactive course, we will bring clarity to a complex system and clearly define all parts of coverages, as well as eligibility, costs, system structure (deductibles, copays, etc.), and various coverage options available beyond original Medicare that will help you, the healthcare provider, assist your clients to navigate their healthcare needs and costs so they can better access what they need and deserve.
