Come learn what is covered, your costs, how Medicare works, and available benefit programs.

This program will be presented by Adele Dean.  She is the Regional Coordinator of the APPRISE program and is employed by Southwestern Pennsylvania Area Agency on Aging (SWPA). Dean will be available to screen participants to see if they qualify for assistance programs, such as Extra Help, Medicare Savings Program, and PACE/PACENET.

The program will conclude with a short film.
