As Medicare Open Enrollment season approaches, Carson City’s senior population is gearing up to make critical decisions about their healthcare coverage.
From October 15 to December 7, eligible seniors can enroll in, switch, or modify their Medicare plans.
To ensure seniors are well-informed and equipped to make the best choices for their healthcare needs, the Carson City Senior Center Advisory Council is introducing an informative event designed to provide essential guidance.
The cornerstone of this event is the Medicare 101 class, which will cover the fundamental aspects of Medicare, including the various parts A, B, C, and D. Hosted by the Access to Healthcare Medicare Assistance Program (MAP), this class aims to provide seniors with a comprehensive understanding of their Medicare options. MAP is known for its unbiased and free Medicare information and counseling services, specifically tailored to assist Northern Nevadans.
During the Medicare 101 session, attendees will learn about the intricacies of Medicare, enabling them to make well-informed choices about their healthcare coverage.
Moreover, participants can schedule future appointments with MAP for free counseling and assistance with plan changes.
Following the informative session, a Medicare Fair will feature local Medicare Advantage and Supplemental Medicare providers.
This is an invaluable opportunity for seniors to engage with these providers directly, allowing them to ask questions and gather detailed information about specific plans.
Seniors can explore various options and assess which programs align best with their healthcare needs.
