Join JFS for educational presentation on Medicare: What you need to know!

Springfield – Are you approaching your 65th Birthday? Are you over 65 and still working? Are you assisting someone on or needing Medicare? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, please join us for "Medicare: What you need to know!" on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Jewish Family Service’s Community Room, 1160 Dickinson Street, Springfield, MA. Navigating the world of Medicare can be confusing; this educational presentation will make it simple.

Speaker Russ Swallow, Certified Senior Advisor®, and Licensed Insurance Advisor has been helping both individuals and companies with their insurance challenges since 1970 with a focus on Medicare Insurance Planning. He will answer questions including:

  • What does Part A, B, C and D cover?
  • What is Medigap?
  • What do I need to know if I'm currently on Medicare?
  • Which plans have no copays, deductibles or gatekeepers?
  • How do I avoid the penalty if I didn't sign up for Parts B or D when I first became eligible?

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Please pre-register. RSVP online or contact Joanna at 413.737.2601. 

In collaboration with The Medicare Advisors.
