Retiring is supposed to be easy but signing up for Medicare is often difficult or confusing for many new retirees.
Thankfully, Medicare 101 is here to help.
On Tuesday, Oct. 17 from 1 to 3 p.m., the free educational program will be presented by the office of Rep. Jackie Walorski at the downtown library.
According to Walorski Constituent Liaison Jan Faker, the program will go over the basics of signing up for and coverage for all types of Medicare parts: A, B, C and D.
Faker said that a representative from the Indiana State Health Insurance Program will be on hand as part of the presentation as well.
“I always say that Medicare arrives like a baby: it doesn’t come with a match,” said Faker.
Since it is a purely educational program, Faker said that attendees can ask questions and get help from impartial sources.
“No one is marketing anything, no one is selling anything,” she said.
