NEHRA's Webinar Series

Understanding Medicare Options

Presented By: The Centers for Medicate & Medicated Services (CMS)

Program Overview:

Do you have employees or retirees who are eligible to enroll in Medicare?  People who are still working (or have retiree, COBRA, or other types of coverage) have important decisions to make about their health coverage when they become eligible for Medicare.  The rules about how other insurance works with Medicare and considerations that people should weigh when deciding whether to enroll in Medicare when they become eligible, vary based on a number of factors.  Enrolling in Medicare late can increase the premium costs for your employees for as long as they have Medicare (and well after they retire from your company) and can result in gaps in coverage.  This webinar will  cover:

  • Who is eligible for Medicare
  • When to enroll into Medicare
  • How can individuals enroll
  • What types of Medicare plans are available
  • Resources for employees and retirees
