Welcome to Medicare Birthday Celebrations!
Free information session for newcomers into Medicare
Welcome to Medicare! If you are turning 65 and want to learn about your Medicare benefits, you need to attend the Trident Area Agency on Aging’s Welcome to Medicare Birthday Celebrations. The sessions are available throughout the Lowcountry and will include information on Medicare benefits; the enrollment process, prescription drugs, and assistance with paying for Medicare Part B and D. State Health Insurance and Assistance Program counselors provide free, unbiased one-on-one insurance counseling and community education regarding Medicare options and prescription drug assistance for elders, their family and caregivers. Individuals often experience changes in their health that may alter the kind of care they need. This could directly affect their need for more or less health insurance, the types of prescription drugs they require or their access to particular doctors or pharmacies. Health changes can also increase costs, which can be particularly critical for Medicare beneficiaries on fixed incomes. For a full calendar of events go to www.tridentaaa.org or call Trident Area Agency on Aging at 554-2279. Space is limited, register today.
