Two upcoming seminars will discuss sound and how to make a sound Medicare decision.
With Medicare open enrollment underway, now is the time to ensure that your medical coverage meets your needs in the most cost-effective way. On Friday, Oct. 20, at 1 p.m., Karen Gaudian of Ridgefield Social Services and Medicare counselor John Rosa will discuss Medicare and explain how specially trained counselors can help you evaluate your options so you can make an informed decision for 2018. Last year, Medicare counselors helped more than 100 local residents save a total of $46,500 in prescription coverage costs. This free and confidential counseling will be available through Dec. 7. If you cannot attend the seminar, you may call Social Services at 203-431-2754 to set up a counseling appointment.
