Medicare

About This Webinar:

For almost sixty years, Medicare has provided health insurance for Americans aged 65 and older and other qualifying individuals. Medicare basically covers individuals the same way regardless of where they live or their level of income; but, it’s a sprawling program and many beneficiaries don’t realize all the benefits to which they’re entitled. During this session, we will discuss the core elements of the Medicare program and major benefits available under the various “parts.”

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe Medicare’s program structure.
  2. Discuss major benefits available to beneficiaries.
  3. Identify key dates and resources to help make the most of Medicare coverage.
