If you have questions about how to enroll in Medicare, consider the ADRC’s Welcome to Medicare class.

This class is held the 2nd Wednesday of every month. It is designed to help those enrolling into Medicare better understand their available options. Topics covered include the basic parts of Medicare (A, B, C & D) and how they work. Information will be provided on how to enroll, additional insurance options available, the drug coverage requirement, and the benefit programs for those with lower income and resources.
