The Area IV Agency on Aging held a “Welcome to Medicare” information meeting at St. Peter’s Health.
According to representatives, the open meeting gave information regarding the process of Medicare, who qualifies, how to apply, and they even spoke about Medicare frauds.
State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) counselors gave the presentation and opened themselves to any questions or concerns to those in attendance.
“I think it’s very important. I think we have a lot of folks who are getting to the age who need medicare. This is a way for us to learn things without having to go online, to talk to somebody individually, and get some information,” says Mary Tapper, an attendee at the event.
The next expected Medicare meeting is March 25, 2020 at St. Peter’s Health at 1 pm.
