What You Need To Know About Medicare

Looking for some help understanding Medicare? Turning 65 in a few months and receiving insurance company mailings that you don’t understand? Maybe you are planning to retire in the next year or so, or perhaps you are helping parents or other family members figure out Medicare coverage or insurance and drug plans.

On Tuesday October 14 local APPRISE counselors with the Clarion Area Agency on Aging will present an introduction to Medicare, including information on drug prescription coverage, Medicare Supplement plans, Medicare Advantage plans, and the upcoming Annual Open Enrollment Period. They will also answer your general Medicare questions. The program will be held at the Clarion Main St Center, 516 Main St Clarion and run from 7- 8:30 pm. For persons with mobility issues, there is an ADA entrance at the rear of the building.

This program is free and is open to the public and light refreshments will be served. Please call 814-226-4640 and ask for APPRISE to register for the evening or to find out more information about this program. APPRISE is a free health insurance counseling program designed to help Pennsylvanians with Medicare.
