Program Description

About this event:

Lifelong and Tompkins County Public Library are pleased to co-host this virtual presentation. Medicare Basics is an introduction to the federally administered health insurance program that provides coverage to persons 65 and older, and persons under 65 who are disabled. Our presentation will cover the different ways you can receive your Medicare benefits, how Medicare works with other health insurance, and financial assistance options that may be available to you. Be your own advocate! This presentation will provide you with some clarity on how to be an informed consumer.

Presented by Trish Coogan, certified volunteer with Lifelong’s Health Insurance Information, Counseling and Assistance Program (HIICAP). In addition to offering presentations, certified HIICAP counselors offer free, non-biased one-on-one health insurance counseling at Lifelong. Telephone or Zoom HIICAP counseling is being provided at this time.

Please contact Lifelong to provide us with your email prior to the presentation if you’d like handouts emailed to you:, or 273-1511 x224.
