Demystifying Medicare is perfect for anyone trying to navigate our complicated healthcare system for older adults. It’s for people who already have Medicare, as well as those soon to be 65, planning their retirement, or assisting relatives and friends with paperwork and medical decisions.

- Original Medicare
- Medicare Advantage Plans
- Prescription drug plans (Part D)
- Medigaps (supplemental plans)
- Various cost-saving programs (MSPs,Extra Help, EPIC, etc.)
Demystifying Medicare is part of the ongoing work of the Westchester Library System to provide authoritative, actionable information that supports seniors in being connected and well-informed. This workshop is being co-sponsored by Greenburgh Parks and Recreation.
