Free Monthly Medicare Workshops Available at Area Libraries

The A, B, C, & D's of Medicare: Free Monthly Medicare Workshop

Jefferson County and Shelby County public libraries are pleased to invite you to a free Medicare educational workshop conducted by Karen Haiflich, an independent benefits advisor specializing in Medicare. Haiflich is volunteering her time to help you better understand your options as you embark upon this important milestone. She will cover the following information from the official U.S. Government Medicare handbook:

  • Defining Medicare and its four parts (A, B,C & D).
  • How and when to enroll in Medicare (what happens when you're already on Medicare and turn 65).
  • When you can change plans (annual open enrollment, special enrollment periods).
  • Medicare health plan coverage choices (Medigap/Medicare supplement plans and Medicare Advantage plans).
  • Medicare prescription drug coverage.
  • How to get help paying your Medicare premium, prescription drugs, and other Medicare costs.
  • What if I keep working? What if my spouse isn't on Medicare? How does Medicare work with other coverage, etc.

Come and get simple straightforward answers to these and other questions to help you better understand Medicare and the options available to you. The workshop lasts approximately one hour and is very interactive.
