Medicare 101/Advance Directives @ Monroe Clinic - Argyle Room
Oct 18 @ 5:30 pm

 

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.
