A free informative presentation to help explain Medicare and benefits will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. at Macon Senior Services located in the Dorothy R. and John L. Crawford building at 108 Wayah Street, near the Chamber of Commerce. This presentation will be done by SHIIP (Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program). Several months before turning 65, you should begin to learn more about your Medicare options and how it relates to your circumstances. Also, people that are new to Medicare due to disability will benefit from this presentation.
There were 103,000-plus North Carolinians who turned 65 in 2012. You must anticipate and plan for becoming a Medicare beneficiary. Don't wait until you're 65 to start thinking about your Medicare choices.
