Medicare has been part of the discussion. So, what’s coming up in 2013?
Every year you have a chance to change your Medicare provider; this year’s open enrollment is from October 15 through December 7, 2012.
The Alameda County Library’s current older adult program will give you the Medicare basics. Presented by HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy), this program will provide an overview of the Medicare program including eligibility, costs, benefits, and recent changes.
The presenter will also explain the various options for supplementing Medicare such as Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigaps), Medicare Advantage Plans and Medi-Cal, and provide information on Medicare’s prescription drug benefit.
When and Where:
This program will be presented at the Fremont Main Library, Wednesday, November 28 at 1:30 PM. If you miss this program or want to hear it again, it will be repeated at the Union City Library on December 5 at 1:30 PM.
