Medicare Basics class will be held again at the time and location listed above. Please RSVP for this class by calling the Extension Office at 341-3220 by March 17th. I must have 10 people to hold this class. This class is designed to be just what it says, the basics. If you are turning 65, helping a parent who is on Medicare, or maybe you just want to understand more about Medicare. We will cover the basics and some of the ins and outs of Medicare. When to sign up, what is Medicare Gap? Do I need one? Wat is Part D? What does Open Enrollment mean? Do I enroll every year? Join us to learn more.
