Attend a presentation designed to provide you with an understanding of Medicare and the choices available to you.

Thinking about changing your current Medicare coverage? This is a great time to get a better understanding of the whole picture.  

Having trouble paying your Medicare premium or related medical expenses? Find out if you may qualify for Federal assistance with your medical expenses.

You’re almost 65? Come learn about how Medicare works. You’ll probably be surprised by the number of choices available to you and all the factors that you should consider when making your choices.
