Event Details

Two-Part Medicare Workshop

If you were born in 1951, more than likely you are thinking about Medi­care this year. That’s right, Medi­care! For those approaching age 65 or eligible for Medicare due to a dis­ability we invite you to join the spe­cialists at Missoula Aging Services to learn how you can make the most of your Medicare options! Be informed about important enrollment dates, limited guaranteed issue rights, how to save money on your prescription drugs and protect yourself from late enrollment penalties!

There is a lot of advice about Medicare out there: on TV, on the internet, and probably in your mailbox! It's important to get local information, because Medicare options vary by state, and even by county. Missoula Aging Services is the local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), meaning you can count on us for local information that is unbiased, helping you make your own decision about Medicare coverage.

Class Descriptions

Evening Session 1:  Go over the basics of your Medicare choices. This class helps people who are new to Medicare and want a complete overview of their options. Whether you choose Medicare A & B and a Part D Prescription Drug Plan, and want a Medicare Supplement, or choose a Medicare Advantage plan, this class will help you make an informed decision. In addition, options to help pay for Medicare costs for people with a limited income will be covered. 2 hours.

Evening Session 2: Part two of this class provides a hands-on com­puter interactive workshop; you’ll learn how easy it is to access your personal Medicare claims, plans & coverage, benefits & entitlements. Class meets in a computer lab. 2 hours.

To make the most of the New to Medicare Workshop, be sure to bring:

  • your favorite day planner or calendar
  • your Medicare card, if you have one
  • a completed list of your prescriptions and medical providers. You can use Missoula Aging Services' Medication and Provider List
