ABC's of Medicare

October 8, 2019

Perry Memorial Hospital is hosting an informational meeting on the ABC’s of Medicare presented by Keith Leitzen of Managed Care Partners, Inc. on Thursday, October 24th.  It will be held in the White Oak Classroom, on the third floor of the main hospital building.  There are two session, morning 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and afternoon 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Through the event, participants will become more familiar with the acronyms used and what they stand for, the networks available, prescription drug plans and how the different plans may affect out of pocket expenses.  Learn about the two roads to Medicare and what you need to know when evaluating options: 

  • Route one, the original Medicare providing coverage to you directly through Part A or Part B.
  • Road two, the Medicare Advantage coverage offered by private insurance companies and Part A and B; Part D which may be included in some plans and the changes that will occur with the changes to Part F and the addition of Part G.  

Become aware of how the costs, coverage, and rules may be different from the original Medicare.   

Confused?  Navigating the Medicare road can be daunting, and we can help.
