In this class we will demystify Medicare and teach “Boomers” what Medicare is and how it really works in Massachusetts. Many approaching 65 have no idea about all the parts of Medicare or what it may mean to them. They are not aware of actions they should take, responsibilities they have in the process or when, where and how they should enroll for different parts of Medicare. We will answer questions like: How can I get my Medicare coverage? Do I need to do anything if I work beyond 65? What do I pay? What does Medicare cover? Can I have other types of health coverage? Can I keep my “Massachusetts Health Connector Plan” when I’m eligible for Medicare? When can I make changes to my coverage? What does Medicare Part A, B, C or D mean for you? The first session will focus on an overview of Medicare, while the second will review prescription drug coverage with an exploration of the website with an emphasis on Medicare’s Plan Finder tool used to Find Health and Drug Plans. Ample time should be available each night for general questions.
