It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Hazel Borders, 88, of Kansas City, Missouri, on Jan. 20, 2015.
Hazel joined the CLAIM Program as a volunteer in November 1998. In her role as a volunteer she assisted many Medicare beneficiaries in navigating Medicare helping them understand their benefits and finding resolutions to problems. She was also very active in outreach, promoting the CLAIM program. Hazel served on the Beneficiary Advisory Committee and provided leadership and insight on how to educate people not only about Medicare but also about Medicare preventative services.
