Free Classes for People New to Medicare

There are important decisions that need to be made when you become eligible for Medicare. Making the wrong decision can lead to not having any or enough health care coverage and financial penalties. The Senior LinkAge Line® through the Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging®, Inc. (MNRAAA) is sponsoring monthly two-part educational sessions for people who will soon be eligible for Medicare.

People should attend both sessions during the month. The first session will provide attendees with an overview of Medicare and their coverage options. During the second session, attendees will learn how to research their options using non-biased tools, such as the Medicare website.

Sessions will be held in Mankato at 201 N. Broad St., Suite 102 (Union Square Building) and in Slayton at 1939 Engebretson Ave.Class size is limited, so call the Senior LinkAge Line® at 1-800-333-2433 to register.

The Senior LinkAge Line® is a free statewide service of the Minnesota Board on Aging and Area Agencies on Aging. The Senior LinkAge Line® is the federally-designated State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for Minnesota and is the place to call for Medicare and health insurance issues. Call 1-800-333-2433 for assistance or go to www.MinnesotaHelp.info® to chat live with a Senior LinkAge Line® specialist.
