Our Educational Workshops are a GREAT
place to start!
The Center for Medicare Services strictly prohibits sales activities at any of our workshops so you can be assured that you'll enjoy a comfortable atmosphere. You'll receive an unbiased education without the influence from insurance companies.
Sit back, relax and join us!
Navigating the mystery of Medicare can be a daunting task. If you're new to Medicare it can be downright confusing and for many even scary. You'll be inundated with junk mail from insurance agents and insurance companies all vying for your attention. You'll receive unwanted phone calls from people you've never met. You'll read and hear about the many choices you'll have and all the decisions you'll need to make. All this coupled with the uncertainty of what steps you need to take and when you need to take them can be quite unnerving.
Don't fret! We're here to help.
Our Welcome to Medicare workshops are designed for those approaching Medicare eligibility. Approximately an hour in duration we not only answer the questions above, we also prepare you for what's to come. And we'll do it in plain language, not the confusing way in which most materials are presented. You'll learn the what's, where's, when's, and how's. And the best part.....you will leave better educated, more confident and less fearful with the Medicare process.
There's never a cost to attend and you can join as many as you'd like.

Are You Eligible for Medicare?
Generally, you are eligible for Medicare if you or your spouse worked for at least 10 years in Medicare-covered employment and you are 65 years old and a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.
If you are not 65, you might also qualify for coverage if you have a disability or with End-Stage Renal disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplant).
Here are some simple guidelines. You can get Part A at age 65 without having to pay premiums if:
- You already get retirement benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board.
- You are eligible to get Social Security or Railroad benefits but have not yet filed for them.
- You or your spouse had Medicare-covered government employment.
If you are under 65, you can get Part A without having to pay premiums if:
- You have received Social Security or Railroad Retirement
- Board disability benefit for 24 months. You are a kidney dialysis or kidney transplant patient.
While you don’t have to pay a premium for Part A if you meet one of those conditions, you must pay for Part B if you want it. It is deducted from your Social Security, Railroad Retirement, or Civil Service Retirement check. If you don’t get any of the above payments, Medicare sends you a bill for your Part B premium every 3 months.
