Medicare Workshop @ Bedford Central Library
Apr 19 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Sample Medicare Card.

Getting started with Medicare can be tricky.
There are deadlines to meet, forms to fill out, and choices to make.  This potentially confusing time can be made easier with our Welcome to Medicare Workshops being held at the Bedford Central, Forest, and Moneta/SML Libraries.  If you are about to retire, are turning 65, or are beginning Medicare based on disability, you are encouraged to attend. Find out how Medicare works, when to enroll in Medicare Part B and Part D and why it’s critical to enroll on time, and how the Affordable Care Act affects Medicare.  After attending, you’ll know how to choose the best Medicare plan for you!  The workshops are presented by
Betty Brickhouse with the Central Virginia Alliance for Community Living.  Each workshop will last about 1.5 hours, and questions are welcome. 

For more information and to sign up, please call your library.
