The Ocean County Office of Senior Services has planned a number of Medicare seminars throughout the county to be held in October and November, including one in Brick.
The Brick seminar will be held Nov. 6 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Brick Senior Center, located in the VFW building at 373 Adamston Road.
The seminars coincide with the open enrollment period for Medicare Part D, which runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7.
“We are providing our seniors the opportunity to learn more about Medicare and any changes that are scheduled to take place in 2015,” said Ocean County Freeholder Director Joseph H. Vicari, in a statement. “The free Medicare Part D educational seminars will provide our seniors and their caregivers with important information on navigating these important health benefits.”
Registration is required. To register call the Ocean County Office of Senior Services at 1-800-668-4899 or 732-929-2091.
In addition to the seminars, detailed information regarding options is available on the Medicare Plan Finder that is up and running on the Internet at www.medicare.gov and in the Medicare and You 2015 Handbook that will be mailed to Medicare beneficiaries. There are numerous plans for New Jersey with different costs and benefit coverage and individuals will need to learn as much as possible about them.
