5:30 pm Apr 22nd"Welcome to Medicare" Workshop Auburn Memorial Library
Mary Ann Holland, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator and Trained SHIIP Professional will be teaching “Welcome to Medicare” workshops in southeast Nebraska during Spring, 2014.

If you are confused about enrollment opportunities in signing-up for Medicare, you will want to attend the workshop. Do you plan to continue working, and delay receiving Social Security benefits? If so, you are still entitled to enroll in Medicare at age 65. Find out what parts of Medicare you would be mostly likely to choose. Are you 65 and uninsured; enrolling in Medicare will give you access to health insurance coverage widely accepted across the country.

If you are currently employed, will your group health plan continue to cover you after you turn 65? If you enroll in Medicare, will your spouse still have access to your employer group plan? How do VA benefits affect Medicare? What does Medicare cost? How do I choose a Medicare Supplement plan? What is a Medicare Advantage plan? Want answers?

Plan to participate in one of the You’re Turning 65: Welcome to Medicare! workshops listed below. No registration is necessary; the workshop is free. Select the date and location that works best for you; content is repeated at each workshop.
