Turning 65 marks a new chapter in a person’s life. There are benefits that become available to you in this new chapter, most notable Medicare. Medicare is a government-sponsored program that entitles most seniors 65 or older to medical insurance. The Medicare program is divided into four parts – A, B, C, and D. Private Medicare Supplemental plans, which may cover more out of pocket expenses, are also available. Navigating the Medicare maze is often a confusing and frustrating journey. This 1 hour presentation is designed to help you with the journey. Pre-registration for the event that best fits your schedule is suggested but not necessary. Call The Elder Benefit Specialist at 328-9366 to reserve your spot.
