We're in the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period—a time for Medicare-eligible people to choose the plan that best supports their total health. And while most people focus on their physical well-being when choosing a Medicare plan, they often overlook other critical aspects of health like staying socially connected. CVS Health’s Path to Better Health study found that 1 in 4 Americans 65 and over report feeling socially isolated — indicating an opportunity to address the problem. This is just one of the topics we will visit about this weekend with Christopher Ciano, senior vice president and head of Aetna Medicare.

A Florida man accused of robbing three banks in three hours turned himself in to police. 40-year-old Sandy Graham Jr. allegedly robbed a trio of banks in Broward County in about the same amount of time it takes to watch a Quentin Tarantino flick or take in a baseball game. The spree started at a Chase bank location in Hollywood around 2:30 p.m., according to the FBI. When he approached a bank teller, Graham implied he had a weapon and demanded money. Other people were inside the bank, but no one was injured. Graham then reportedly moved on to a Bank of America, located about 10 minutes away, and followed the same script. Around 5:30 p.m., Graham wrapped up the string of heists at a SunTrust branch and, again, implied he had a weapon and demanded money. It was not immediately clear if the person robbing the banks actually had a weapon or how much money he took. The FBI released photos of the bank robber and, on Saturday, Graham surrendered to authorities and was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service.(https://fxn.ws/2WpkBRk)
