Demystifying Medicare and Healthcare Coverage for Seniors at the Somers Library
Saturday, July 14, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
This presentation of the library system's Westchester Seniors Out Speaking 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 engaging, interactive program outlines 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 include original:
- Original Medicare
- Medicare Advantage Plans,
- Prescription drug plans (Part D)
- Medigaps (supplemental plans),
and various cost-saving programs (MSPs, Extra help, EPIC, etc.) that can help seniors with limited resources.
