A New-To-Medicare workshop sponsored by Blue Mountain Health System will take place at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, not 6 p.m. as the hospital initially announced.
The workshop, co-sponsor by the Carbon County Agency on Aging, will be held at the Bowmanstown Medical Plaza, 204 Bank St., Bowmanstown.
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, Lois Stevens, and Kellie Hammond, 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.
