Bay Aging’s VICAP program (Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program) is providing a series of presentations to review the Medicare program and beneficiaries’ benefits. The presentations will cover the different parts of Medicare and costs associated with the coverage. The program will also cover Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) insurance, Medicare Advantage plans also called Part C and Medicare Part D for drug coverage.
We will review Medicare’s Annual Enrollment which runs from October 15th until December 7th and how this is a good time for Medicare beneficiaries to review their Part C and Part D coverage. Plans can change networks, costs and drug coverage, and it is a good idea to make sure you are in the best plan.
The presentation will also include programs that are available to help cover the costs of medical expenses and help to pay for your medications.
The presentation is 30 minutes long with time afterwards for Questions and Answers.
Bay Aging’s VICAP program also provides individual counseling and help comparing Medigap, Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans. To find out more or to schedule a presentation for your group, please contact Lisa Walker, VICAP Coordinator at 1-866-758-2386 ext. 1234.
