Learn the basics of the Medicare system during a Thursday, March 19, workshop at Whatcom Community College.
Participants will learn about what Medicare does and doesn’t cover, Medicare enrollment, rights, health plans and supplements, Part D prescription drug plans, and Medicare savings programs.
The class is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and costs $15, which also will cover a spouse or partner.
Medicare is the federal health care insurance program for people ages 65 and older, and for the disabled.
Never miss a local story.
Australia Cosby, coordinator of the Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors program, will lead the workshop.
Participants also may have a one-on-one consultation with a SHIBA volunteer.
