Queensbury Senior Center Medicare 101 Event

Kate Barkley is hosting a Medicare 101 Lunch and Learn event at Queensbury Senior Center (742 Bay Road) on January 24, 2023 at 12:30 PM.  This event – which features a free lunch – is sponsored by CVS Health, and Aetna. Medicare is a federally funded medical insurance program for the elderly and disabled, and also provides coverage for people with end stage renal disease and ALS. 

The topics covered at this event will include:

  • How Medicare works
  • When to enroll and how to avoid penalties
  • What do Parts A, B, C,& D cover
  • Prescription drug plans 

Medicare is broken down to four different parts, and each part pays for different expenses and has separate enrollment procedures. Individuals can choose what coverages they want, and also who they would like to manage their coverage if they choose an advantage plan. When enrolling in medicare part B, people often make mistakes. Common mistakes while enrolling can result in late enrollment penalties, higher out-of-pocket costs, and gaps in coverage. 

To register for this event, either go to the front desk of the Queensbury Senior Center, or call (518) 761-8224.
