Medicare Education, Enrollment, and Advocacy – Support CCHCC

June 14, 2018

CCHCC is launching our Medicare Education, Enrollment, and Advocacy Project, and we hope you will help support this effort.

Support CCHCC.

Medicare is complicated. There are many parts, and there are many options for additional coverage. And there are more expenses that go with Medicare than most people realize.

Many people who are turning 65 and signing up for Medicare Parts A and B are surprised to learn that Part A has a hospital deductible, and Part B has a monthly premium. For too many individuals, facing the monthly Premium of Part B at the very same time that they are going on to the fixed income of their Social Security retirement benefits, the cost of Part B is just too much and some elect to forego Part B coverage. And without Part B coverage, they cannot get Part D prescription drug coverage.

Medicare is complicated, but CCHCC’s knowledgeable and experienced Community Health Workers are here to help our community members navigate the Medicare system!
