Healthcare is one of the most important decisions we make and it’s so important we have a solid grasp of the options prior to making a choice. This is especially true for Seniors when it comes to Medicare and the many diverse choices and options that we are faced with in the system. We receive information from many sources leading up to enrollment, but in many cases that can lead to further confusion. We’re offering a free seminar about Medicare basics and what you need to know when turning 65 at the Lymes’ Senior Center on June 20th at 1:00pm. The seminar will be presented by John Pitarra Jr and James Fernstrom of Senior Health Insurance, located in Clinton CT.
