Demystifying Medicare is perfect for anyone trying to navigate our complicated 
healthcare system for older adults. The workshop is for people who already have 
Medicare, as well as those soon to be 65, planning their retirement, or assisting 
relatives and friends with their medical decisions. Demystifying Medicare is 
offered as part of the ongoing work of the Westchester Library System to provide 
authoritative, actionable information that supports seniors in being connected 
and well-informed.

In this engaging interactive session you will learn about the various parts of 
Medicare as well as the costs associated with medical and drug insurance provided 
by the government and private companies. Topics include:
  • Original Medicare
  • Medicare Advantage Plans
  • Prescription drug plans (Part D)
  • Medigaps (supplemental plans)
  • Various cost-saving programs (MSPs, Extra Help, EPIC, etc.)
