Learn about Medicare

On Thursday, July 17, at 10:30 a.m., join us in the town hall boardroom for this informative program.

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.

Thinking about changing your current Medicare coverage? This is a great time to get a better understanding of the whole picture.  

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

You’re almost 65? 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.  

Please call 356-1980, ext. 1094 by July 10, to register.
