Medicare, our country’s health insurance program for those age 65 or older, has many different qualifiers and it can be a challenge to understand.  Over the years, the Library,  with the support of local organizations that understand the nuances of the program,  have offered educational programming to help keep everyone informed. Please feel welcome to join us next Thursday for the following program:

 

Maximize Your Medicare Benefits

Thursday, August 31  | 10:00 am-12:00 pm

Community Room

Learn more about your Medicare options! This presentation will provide an overview of Medicare Parts A, B, C and D as well as supplemental insurance and an explanation of how they all fit together. The program will also include information about Medicare’s upcoming annual open enrollment period (October 15 – December 7) and an explanation of how to use and understand the plan comparison tool on Medicare’s website.

Important information will be shared about special programs for Medicare beneficiaries with limited income that may help them pay their Medicare costs (Medicare Savings Plans) and also help pay for their Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (“Extra Help”).

Remember, the better informed you are, the better decisions you can make!

Presented by:
Debbie Bisswurm
Waukesha County SHIP Outreach Specialist
