Choosing how and when to get Medicare is an important but difficult decision.
The 2022 Welcome to Medicare Workshop is designed to empower, educate, and assist Medicare-eligible individuals in a safe, virtual environment.
PASSAGES – HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program) is announcing the 2022 Welcome to Medicare Webinar series for those turning 65, or younger adults who will be entitled to Medicare due to a disability. Beneficiaries have several choices around when and how to enroll. Oftentimes understanding the different parts of Medicare, when to enroll, and which type of care is not covered by Medicare can seem complicated.
In this Workshop, we provide a decision support path that guides those aging into Medicare with understanding the options available to them, and where to get help with their decision-making.
Due to the Public Health Emergency, workshops will be conducted online via ZOOM. There will be no in-person presentations at this time.
July 12th & August 9th: Workshop Part 1: Medicare Part A, B, and Part D
July 13th & August 10th : Workshop Part 2: Medicare Advantage Part C, Medigaps, programs to reduce Medicare costs, and how to avoid Medicare insurance fraud/scams.
Time: 10am – Noon
*Registration is required, guests must have access to an email address and computer (or another smart device) to participate.
