CONTRA COSTA COUNTY HICAP: Medicare Presentation Oct. 27, 2022 at 1pm
Pleasant Hill Senior Center, Chateau Room, Click here to register
It's time to review your Medicare coverage for next year. Even if you like your current plan, it may have changed its copays, drugs or providers or your needs may have changed. There may also be better options available. Last year the number of Advantage Plans in Contra Costa doubled and there were significant changes to drug plans as well. HICAP will discuss the options for 2023 and how to potentially save lots of money or get better coverage. Come see what’s in store for next year and learn what your choices are. Materials will be available.
