ADRC Offering Welcome to Medicare Classes

(Dodge County) The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Dodge County will once again be offing informational Welcome to Medicare classes in 2022.  Currently classes are scheduled for January 24th and February 17th at 1pm, and March 23rd at 9am.  Elder and Disability Benefit Specialist Jennie Farmer says while each class is the same, some people choose to attend twice.  First attending 6 months before they are eligible to enroll in Medicare, and then again right before enrolling.  She adds each class provides the same information, but it can be beneficial to refresh the information prior to enrollment ensuring they understand their benefits.


Elder Benefit Specialist Amanda Higgins explains that the classes are very comprehensive, starting with explaining when people are eligible, as well as how to enroll.  In addition, Higgins says attendees are provided with additional resources available to them within the community interwoven with tips and tricks for navigating the Medicare enrollment system.


Classes are currently scheduled through May of 2022 and will be offered in person as well as via zoom.  For more information or to register contact the ADRC of Dodge County at 920-386-3580.
