Demystifying Medicare & Healthcare Coverage for Seniors

October 23 @ 10:15 am - 1:15 pm

Free

This presentation is perfect for anyone trying to navigate our complicated healthcare system for older adults. It will help those who already have Medicare, as well as people soon to be 65, planning their retirement, or assisting relatives and friends with their medical decisions.

The program explains the various parts of Medicare and lays out the costs associated with the medical and drug insurance provided by the government and private companies. Topics will include original Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, prescription drug plans (Part D), Medigaps (supplemental plans), and cost-saving programs like EPIC that can help seniors with limited resources.

Come and get a handle on this thorny subject in a user-friendly atmosphere. Walk-ins welcome, but registration is requested at (914) 231-3236. Plan on 3 hours, to include some light-hearted interactivity and questions.

This program is sponsored by the Library and the Dobbs Ferry Senior Citizen Program. For more information and other dates of this presentation (mostly in the Fall), please visit https://seniors.westchesterlibraries.org/senior-benefits/. If you need individual help, please call the Senior Benefits Individual Counseling (SBIC) helpline, (914) 231-3260, or email SBIC@wlsmail.org.
