Important changes are coming to Medicare in 2020. Do you know what they are? Come to a FREE Educational presentation at your library in October to find out, and get the answers you need to your other Medicare questions, as well!

Those who would benefit and who might want to attend, would be: Anyone already on Medicare, Anyone approaching Medicare age (turning 65), Any spouses and/or children of those on Medicare who help make these types of decisions, and Anyone under 65 who is on disability and receiving Medicare benefits as well.

Some specific information that might be of interest to those who will attend, could be: How do some qualify to have a lower Part B premium, or "Extra Help" paying for their prescriptions and/or Part D premiums? How and when can or should I enroll in Medicare? What are "Special Enrollment Periods" and why do some qualify to have these all year long? What does Medicare cover, what doesn’t it cover, and what might be your potential out of-pocket exposure? What to consider when choosing Supplements, Medicare Advantage plans and Part D Prescription Coverage, as well as cost saving strategies for the years ahead?

Registration preferred and can be done online at myjcpl.org/events or by visiting or calling the library: DeMotte (219) 987-2221; Rensselaer (219) 866-5881; Wheatfield (219) 956-3774.
