‘Medicare and you’ class set for Oct. 10
A free “Medicare and You” class will be offered at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, at The Center on Highway 5 just north of the Gainesville city limits. This class, sponsored, by The SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging and The Center, will help participants make sense of the decisions involved in starting Medicare and in making choices during open enrollment.
Organizers say the class will provide useful information regarding traditional Medicare Parts A (hospital) and B (medical), Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C plans), Medicare Part D prescription drug plans as well as information on fraud prevention, the Affordable Care Act and new Medicare cards to be issued in the future.
Individual counseling is also available by appointment after the class. Appointments are limited; call Treva Warrick, 417-840-2573, to schedule one.
