Care Connection covers basics in Medicare 101

Care Connection’s Medicare 101 sessions will be presented live twice a month on the agency’s Facebook page. The sessions will take place at noon the first and third Mondays of each month.

The Medicare 101 sessions are geared toward people who are new to Medicare and those who are considering retirement.

During the one-hour Facebook Live session, certified Medicare counselors will explain the options that newcomers have available in Medicare and what each means, depending on an individual’s situation. Attendees will be able to ask questions in the comments during the sessions.

The session includes explanations of Parts A, B, C, and D, as well as Advantage plans and supplemental plans.
