BEND, OR -- An upcoming event in Bend is designed to teach Central Oregonians how to get the most out of Medicare. It’s a free workshop offered by Pacific Source Community Health Plans, aimed to people who are six to eight months from joining the Medicare system. 


“It’s primarily aimed at those soon to become Medicare eligible, to help them navigate the Medicare system to help them make wise choices on Medicare coverage,” says Pacific Source's Brad Westphal. He tells KBND News the workshop will cover a number of topics, “What Medicare covers; what it Medicare doesn’t cover; what Medicare costs; options for adding extra options to your Medicare; timelines on when you need to make decisions and choices; how you sign up for Medicare.”
Other topics include what Medicare costs, options for adding extra coverage and timelines on when you need to make decisions. It takes place at the Bend Senior Center August fourth. You can RSVP at Pacific Source or the senior center.
