Plan Ahead for Medicare

Description

For those approaching age 65, this course will demystify Medicare and get you prepared for this important financial step. Topics will include: when and how to apply for Medicare, its cost and coverage; differences between Parts A, B, C and D; what to do if still working beyond age 65; supplemental coverage; what happens to those on “Mass Connector” plans after signing up for Medicare; and your rights under Medicare. The first session will provide a basic overview of Medicare, while the second will focus on prescription drug coverage, along with an exploration of the Medicare.gov website with an emphasis on Medicare’s Plan Finder tool used to Find Health and Drug Plans. Participants also will learn how to schedule a free consultation with a SHINE counselor for personal questions that cannot be addressed in these sessions. These informative evenings will be led by staff from SHINE, a partnership of the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and Minuteman Senior Services. SHINE provides free and unbiased information to Medicare recipients of all ages.
