2012 Changes and Updates to Medicare
Saturday, October 13, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PDT)
Santa Clara, CA
AAII Silicon Valley Chapter Presents: "2012 Changes and Updates to Medicare"
Important: Please Note the New Location!
Ask anyone turning 65 about Medicare and, likely as not, they will say it is confusing and complicated. There are Parts A and B of Original Medicare, and Medigap plans to supplement them. There’s Part D, the prescription drug plan with the infamous “donut hole.” And there’s Part C of Medicare, also known as Medicare Advantage, which typically combines Parts A, B and D into one plan. There is the process of enrollment, as well as a myriad of rights and rules every Medicare beneficiary should know.
The Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) of the Council on Aging Silicon Valley can help current and prospective Medicare beneficiaries as well as caregivers unravel the mysteries and wonders of Medicare.
Attend This Meeting to Learn:
What Medicare is, and understand the benefits and costs
Understand the required and optional parts of Medicare, including prescription drug coverage
Understand what the health care reform legislation means for Medicare beneficiaries
Reasons to Attend This Meeting:
Know what the options are for “filling the gaps” in Medicare coverage, including retiree benefits and Medigap policies
Be better able to decide on which parts of Medicare you or your loved-one should select
Don’t miss the new enrollment periods
