The public is invited to a free Medicare workshop starting at noon June 15 at Asante Ashland Community Hospital. The hour-long workshop will be presented by Cheryl Harrison and Melissa Mlasko of Futurity First Insurance Group.
The purpose is to help explain the sometimes confusing and complicated federal health insurance program to anyone who will soon turn 65 and enroll in Medicare.
Medicare 101 will touch on the Medicare enrollment process. Presenters will review Medicare Part A and Part B, as well as Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans and Medicare Supplement health insurance plans. Participants also will learn how Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plans work and how to get help with the cost of prescription drugs.
The workshop is available at no charge. To register, call Cheryl Harrison at 541-973-2100. For accommodation of persons with special needs, call 711.
Futurity First is not connected with or endorsed by the United States government or the federal Medicare program.
The hospital is at 280 Maple St. Attendees should enter through the east entrance, off Catalina Drive.
