Tyler Jung talks about the importance of Medicare Open Enrollment, offers information for seniors regarding important changes and reforms to Medicare coverage.
According to the Pew Research Center, approximately 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every single day for the next 15 years. It has never been a more important time for seniors to know and understand their healthcare benefits. The Medicare Open Enrollment period runs from October 15th through December 7th, when seniors will have the opportunity to review and make important changes to their Medicare plans. Seniors should be encouraged to review their existing policies for any modifications in costs, coverage and benefits during Open Enrollment. They should also be aware of improved health care opportunities under new Medicare reforms, including a new focus on providing coordinated care, an outcome-based form of health care in which a team of providers, including nurse practitioners, physician assistants and specialists work alongside primary care providers to promote preventative, high-quality care.

STEPHANIE HONIG – HONIG VINEYARD AND WINERY - HONIG WINERY DONATES TASTING FEES TO SUPPORT STAFF CHARITIES
Family-owned Honig Vineyard & Winery announced today that they will be donating tasting fees from the month of October to several different charities selected by their tasting room employees. “With twelve members of our tasting room team, that means that twelve different organizations will receive funds,” said Stephanie Honig. “It has always been our mission to help our community in any way we can, and this is just one more creative way to share our success. Our team members are very excited to be able to support their favorite charity.”
The Honig’s have been donating their tasting fees for some time now. Some of the organizations benefiting from their generosity include: Redwood Middle School (Honig’s Adopt-A-School through the Napa Valley Vintners); diabetes research; St. Helena Hospital; and the Red Cross (natural disaster relief for events such as hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the Japanese Tsunami), and more.
Honig is encouraging other wineries to participate in this new staff partnership. “Giving our tasting fees to the community not only helps organizations in need, but makes our customers feel good about paying for their tasting experience at Honig,” Stephanie says. “Since October is one of our busiest months for visitors, it made sense to start this new program with the tasting room crew. However, we will offer the same opportunity to other departments throughout the year.” As a sustainable business, the family knows the importance of supporting their employees. “One of the key elements of sustainability is equity, and that means ensuring that our employees are given the tools for success. We already provide comprehensive benefits, PTO, 401K, and profit sharing. Giving the staff the opportunity to donate annually to the charity of their choice is just one more benefit. It really reinforces that they are a part of the team.”
