Anoka County Library Presents More “Understanding Medicare” Classes

Date: Sep 10th, 2012

Anoka County Library is presenting several “Understanding Medicare” classes this fall for seniors and those who care for seniors. Classes are free to participants, but seating is limited.

Find outwhat is covered by Parts A, B, C and D of Medicare and the Medicare supplement options available. Learn how and when to enroll in Medicare and the personal costs of the program. Other topics discussed include changes to Medicare due to recent health care reform, the donut hole and eligibility for extra help with prescription drug costs.

“Navigating the labyrinth of options available can be incredibly stressful,” said Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah. “Hopefully these programs will help families understand the system better and help them feel better about their choices for themselves or a loved one.”
