Join Us For Medicare 101 Online Tomorrow! RSVP For Access Details

Please join us tomorrow online for a free program co-sponsored by Abbot Public Library, Swampscott Public Library, and JCCNS.

Medicare 101 is a free educational program designed to help those turning 65 looking to add Medicare coverage, as well as those already utilizing Medicare, to have a better understanding of the program and their options. This will be a short overview of the Medicare system so that, after attending, you will be better able to understand:

  • What is covered and what is not
  • Changes for 2020
  • Costs of the various options
  • Options for coverage
  • Dates to be aware of
  • Penalties to avoid
  • Low Income Assistance

Per Medicare (CMS) guidelines, this is an educational event and no specific carrier plan details will be presented.

Please RSVP to sewing@jccns.com for details on how to access this program on Zoom.
