Classes explain Medicare options

Classes outlining the basics of Medicare will be held at three Shawano County locations in March.

Navigating the different systems of available Medicare benefits can be both tricky and frustrating. The Medicare Basics class will help area residents learn more about Medicare introductory information and other Medicare options that they might have.

The class will offered from 1-3 p.m. March 9 in the Community Education room at Shawano Community Middle School, 1050 S. Union St., Shawano; from 6-8 p.m. March 9 at the Wittenberg Community Center, 208 W. Vinal St., Wittenberg; and from 6-8 p.m. March 14 at the Shawano County Human Services Department, 607 E. Elizabeth St., Shawano.

The classes will be presented by the Aging and Disability Resource Center disability benefit specialist and the Shawano County Human Services elder benefit specialist.

Classes are free and open to the public.
