Medicare Education and Social Security Basics
At St. Joseph Health, we understand how overwhelming Medicare can be. We
know you're flooded with information, which can make it difficult
to know what do to and when to do it. Our
"Medicare Education and Social Security Basics" meeting will help you make an informed decision.
We will discuss the basics of Social Security, Medicare Part A, B, C, and
D, Medigap (supplement plans), enrollment windows and timing. You'll
have a chance to ask specific questions based on your individual needs.
"Medicare Education and Social Security Basics" is the first of two Medicare meetings. If you would like to compare all
the health plans with which St. Joseph Hoag Health contracts with, we
invite you to also attend our
"Medicare Benefits" meetings.
If you will be retiring, no longer covered through a spouse's plan,
or would like to compare your employer's health plan with Medicare,
then this meeting is for you. After a brief overview of Medicare, we will
present our health plan partners and their plan's benefits. You will
be able to compare health plan benefits side by side.
If you have not yet attended our
"Understanding Medicare" meeting, we strongly encourage you to do so prior to attending our
"Medicare Benefits" meeting.
