During this 90 minute session, you'll learn how to make the most of your Medicare options!

The workshop covers:

Important enrollment dates
Limited guaranteed issue rights
How to save money on prescription drugs
How to prevent late enrollment penalties
Options to help pay for Medicare costs for people with a limited income
Choosing between Medicare A & B and a Part D Prescription Drug Plan, a Medicare Supplement, or a Medicare Advantage Plan
It's important to get local information because Medicare options vary by state, and even by county.

Space is limited. Pre-registration is required. Relevant Medicare publications will be provided. An opportunity to participate in a no-cost phone appointment with a MAS Resource Specialist to further discuss benefit options will also be offered after the workshop.

Missoula Aging Services (MAS) is the local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) that you can count on for unbiased information. The workshop is presented by Resource Specialists at Missoula Aging Services and trained SHIP Counselors. For more information or assistance registering, please contact MAS at (406) 728-7682.d
