Medicare 101
Confused by Medicare?  We have the answers!  Certified health insurance (HIICAP) counselors from the Department of Aging will present Medicare 101 to employers and their employees, organizations, groups or clubs in Chemung County.  The presentation will include Medicare enrollment periods, the four parts of Medicare, and how to decide what coverage is right for you.  We will also discuss the transition from the Health Insurance Marketplace to Medicare and assistance for individuals with limited income and resources.  We hope to help you gain a better understanding of the perplexing world of Medicare and to inform you about your decisions related to Medicare and other health insurance products.

If you are nearing retirement age or if you have caregiving responsiblities or aging parents, this presentation may be of great value to you.  The presentation typically runs around two hours and can be customized to meet the needs of your group or organization.
