Learn about Medicare

Will you soon be 65? Are you already enrolled in Medicare but still have questions about your coverage options?  There are Medicare counselors trained to help you understand your choices and options. Attend a presentation designed to provide you with an understanding of Medicare and the choices available to you.

This program is on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the town hall boardroom. Please call the senior office to register ahead of time.

Thinking about changing your current Medicare coverage? This is a great time to get a better understanding of the whole picture.  The enrollment change period will begin in October and end early in December.

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

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. 

Individual appointments will be available from Oct. 21 to Nov. 25. Call the senior office for more details.
