Agency announced Medicare 101 schedule

Date: February 1, 2019 | Category: News

Care Connection for Aging Services will present Medicare 101 sessions for the public in all of its 13 counties over the next five months.
The sessions, presented during the lunch hour, are free and open to the public. The workshop is geared toward people who are new to Medicare or considering retirement. During the Medicare 101 session, participants will learn which factors they should consider in making Medicare choices.
The workshop covers Medicare premiums, deductibles, copayments, and benefits, as well as the differences in Parts A, B, C, and D. The session explains Medigap insurance and Medicare Advantage plans.
Participants also will learn how they may qualify for assistance in paying for prescriptions and medical care.
Reservations may be made by calling 1-800-748-7826. Lunch will be available for a contribution for people 60 and older and for the full cost of the meal (about $7.30) for all others.
While Care Connection does not sell insurance or recommend specific plans, our professionals can guide seniors through the decision-making process.
