Learn more about the Medicare maze. All men and women in the area who are nearing age 65 within the next year, or soon to qualify due to a disability, or who are helping family members with insurance and financial matters will find the upcoming Medicare Basics program beneficial. At this workshop, you will discover answers to your Medicare questions.
The Clay Center program will be held on Monday, August 13, at the River Valley District Extension Office, 322 Grant Avenue in Clay Center. Or, you can attend the Concordia workshop the following evening on Tuesday, August 14th at the Concordia Senior Center located at 109 West 7th Street. Both programs will be presented from 6-8 p.m., so working people can attend.
Medicare eligibility, how and when to apply, what is covered in Medicare, and how to fill the gaps will be discussed. Programs will be explained that are available to assist low-income individuals, as well as how to watch for Medicare fraud.
Aaren Sunderman, Judy Uphoff, and Deanna Turner, River Valley District Agent, will present these programs. They are Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas Counselors or SHICK Counselors and help people throughout the year with their Medicare and health insurance needs, so they can make informed decisions.
K-State Research and Extension River Valley District and the North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging are sponsors of the programs. Encourage your friends or relatives who soon will be turning age 65 to attend one of these workshops.
