Medicare 101 set for March 25

By Dee Furlough

“Welcome to Medicare” will be held on Wednesday, March 25, from 6 p.m. at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Tyrrell County Center, 407 Martha Street in Columbia.

“Welcome to Medicare” is a program to answer all your Medicare questions. This program is free and all are invited to attend.

It is very important for everyone becoming eligible for Medicare to get accurate information about coverage options, supplemental health insurance, the many Parts of Medicare and prescription drug coverage. Attention to these issues will help you avoid serious and costly problems later.

No pre-registration is necessary. For more information, contact Dee Furlough at 796-1581 or dee_furlough@ncsu.edu.
