You’re Invited to Get to Know Medicare

National Medicare Education Week has one goal — to help empower you to make informed Medicare decisions. Local education events are planned across the country to help you prepare for the fall Annual Enrollment Period.  

You get to choose the Medicare coverage you want every year. But you don’t have to do it alone.

 Join us to get answers to your Medicare questions and help understanding:

  • Medicare coverage and costs, including the differences between Medicare supplement and Medicare Advantage plans

  • How to choose Medicare coverage based on your health, budget and lifestyle needs

  • What to think about if you’re working past age 65 and have employer coverage

Bring your questions and your friends! Events are free and open to all.
