Speaker Info: If you are approaching 65, you are thinking about becoming part of the medical insurance program for seniors called Medicare! It’s an insurance program that presents us Medicare “newbies” with dilemmas and decisions and the constant concern of “doing the right thing”. Gail Seymour, CHOICES, counselor with the Western CT Area Agency on Aging, will explain what you need to know, what your options are when it comes to Medicare and when you have to make your choices. We will learn what this insurance will cost and how Connecticut monitors Medicare supplemental insurance plans. This unbiased information will help you choose what best fits YOUR needs, explain how to enroll and how to change insurances if you wish. After the discussion, there will be time for questions from the group. Ms. Seymour will also be available to answer questions confidentially and privately. For more information please call the Center 860-738-9521
