Mercy Medical Center employee named “OSHIIP coordinator of the year”

Terri Gursky, senior friends coordinator at Mercy Medical Center and Medicare adviser, was recently named 2014 OSHIIP (Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program) Coordinator of the Year by the Ohio Department of Insurance. Gursky, who also serves as the OSHIIP Stark County coordinator, earned the recognition because of her strong leadership skills, dedication and commitment to the program and volunteer efforts, which ensure clients receive outstanding service and accurate information.

Gursky and Mercy's team of OSHIIP volunteers help seniors evaluate Medicare Advantage Plans and prescription drug coverage options by offering free one-on-one consultations.

“Determining what’s right for an individual is a mathematical equation based on health, current prescriptions and personal needs, and it may change from year to year,” Gursky said.

Mercy Senior Friends OSHIIP SHIPMates program received the 2012 OSHIIP Team of the Year Award from the Ohio Department of Insurance. Volunteers were commended for their dedication to helping Ohioans understand their Medicare benefits.
