What the Health is Medicare: A Special Two-Part Course
This course includes two sessions, each designed to teach what you need to know about Medicare.
The first class, Navigating the Medicare Maze, addresses the full scope of Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D. This includes when and how to enroll; how Medicare coordinates with other health plans; the world of Medicare Advantage; how to avoid costly lifetime late-enrollment penalties; and how to file a Medicare appeal.
The second class, The Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP), explains how to review a Medicare Part D or Part C plan for the upcoming year. The AEP is from October 15 to December 7 each year with any choices effective January 1. This class illustrates how to create an online Medicare account and how to use that account to review and choose the best plan for your individual needs next year.
Howard Houghton has taught Medicare classes for over 25 years, mostly as a staff member with the Fairfax County Area Agency on Aging. He has now been a volunteer health insurance counselor with the Valley Program for Aging Services for over seven years, providing individual counseling to residents while also providing Medicare community outreach.
