Navigating the complexities of Medicare can be daunting for many individuals as they transition into this vital healthcare program.

The event aims to empower new Medicare beneficiaries with essential information about their coverage options, rights, and available resources. Whether attendees are approaching age 65 or are new to Medicare, this session promises to demystify the enrollment process and address common concerns.

During the two-hour event, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain insights into the various parts of Medicare and understand how they work.

  • Learn about enrollment periods, deadlines, and penalties for late enrollment.
  • Receive personalized assistance and answers to specific questions from knowledgeable Medicare Counselors
  • Connect with fellow beneficiaries and share experiences in a supportive environment.

“We understand that transitioning to Medicare can be overwhelming, which is why we’re excited to offer this informative event to our community,”  Sheila Gregory, Extension Program Assistant and Volunteer SHIIP Coordinator “Our goal is to equip attendees with the knowledge and confidence they need to make informed decisions about their healthcare coverage.”

The “Welcome to Medicare” event will take place at the Moyock Public Library located at 126 Campus Dr, Moyock, NC 27958. Light refreshments will be provided, and admission is FREE of charge.
