If you or someone you love is turning 65 in the near future, now is the time to learn the basics about the Medicare Health Insurance program.
There will be a Medicare Basics informational meeting on Sept. 16 at the Dodge County Extension Office at 1206 W. 23rd St. in Fremont. Current COVID-19 precautions will be taken, including social distancing and masks will be strongly encouraged. If the meeting cannot safely be held in person a Zoom session will be coordinated for those able to join in this manner.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and nothing will be marketed or sold. It’s a free informational meeting presented by Mary Loftis, a trained State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselor. Anyone from any county or community is welcome to take part in this program. Family members are also encouraged to attend. A question and answer session will be available after the presentation.
A future Welcome to Medicare session is planned for 7 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Rosen Room in Oakland Auditorium.
Call Nebraska Extension in Dodge County at 402-727-2775 to register for the Sept. 16th Medicare Basics session.
