This 90-minute virtual workshop with Missoula Aging Services assists people New to Medicare in learning about their benefit options.

About this event

During the session attendees learn how to make the most of their Medicare options. The workshop agenda includes:

  • Important enrollment dates
  • Limited guaranteed issue rights
  • How to save money on prescription drugs
  • How to prevent late enrollment penalties
  • Options to help pay for Medicare costs for people with a limited income
  • Choosing between Medicare A & B and a Part D Prescription Drug Plan, a Medicare Supplement, or a Medicare Advantage Plan

It's important to get local information because Medicare options vary by state, and even by county. This session is facilitated on Zoom from Missoula, Montana.

Participate online using Zoom. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required and is first come, first served. An email confirmation with the Zoom meeting ID, password and instructions will be sent to registered participants several days prior to the session date. After completion of the workshop, relevant Medicare publications will be provided. An opportunity to participate in a no cost phone appointment with a MAS Resource Specialist to further discuss benefit options will also be offered after the workshop.

MAS is the local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) that the community can count on for information that is unbiased. The workshop is presented by Kathy Kimmet and Megan Fournier, Resource Specialists at Missoula Aging Services (MAS) and trained SHIP Counselors. For more information or assistance registering, please contact MAS at (406) 728-7682.

The workshop will not cover SSDI nor will it answer questions about taxes. If you are on SSDI and starting Medicare, call MAS for a no cost New to Medicare phone appointment.
