The Ocean County Library will host “Medicare 101: Aging In” at the Tuckerton and Long Beach Island branches later this month. Representatives of Blue Cross/Blue Shield will provide an overview of Medicare and the aging process, including what Medicare is, who qualifies, how Medicare works with other insurance, Medicare parts A through D and supplemental policies, and how to decide which plan is best for you. Attendees will learn the steps to prepare for the day they are eligible for Medicare.
The program will be held Thursday, Oct. 25 at the Tuckerton branch at 10:30 a.m. and later that day at 2 at the LBI branch. The sessions will be followed by free screenings including blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose by a registered nurse as well as health and wellness information.
To register, call the Tuckerton branch at 609-296-1470 or LBI at 609-494-2480.
