Blue Mountain Health System will co-sponsor a New to Medicare Workshop with the Carbon County Area Agency on Aging at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 21, in the community room at the Gnaden Huetten campus, 211 N. 12th St. in Lehighton.

The four parts of Medicare include hospital care, physician and lab work and prescription drug coverage. It is important to get a basic understanding of the program.

Representatives from the Carbon County Area Agency on Aging, Susan Zeigler and Lois Stevens, will provide a general introduction to Medicare, which includes Medicare Parts A-D, Medicare supplemental insurance (Medi-Gap policies), Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D).

The New to Medicare program is to help people entering Medicare for the first time, and their caregivers, to better understand this comprehensive healthcare program.

Please register at (610) 377-7070.
