Help is available for people who will be 65 in the next year or two, are receiving mail about Medicare insurance, and want to learn more about Medicare and what it covers.

Jeanne Murray, UNL Extension Educator and a Nebraska Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) volunteer, will present an informational program on pre-Medicare issues Wednesday, April 23, in Scottsbluff. The program will begin at 6 p.m. in the Bluestem Room at the UNL Panhandle Research and Extension Center, 4502 Avenue I, Scottsbluff. Enter the building through the side door to the left of the main front doors on the east side of the Center. 

Topics include how and when to apply for Medicare; what to do for those who want to keep working and delay Medicare; explanations of Part A, Part B, and Part D; descriptions of Medicare Advantage plans; deciding whether to purchase Medigap or supplemental insurance; and things to consider when choosing a plan. There will also be information on Medicare's preventive services and MyMedicare.gov, the place where claim information is stored.
