Medicare - Getting Started Seminars in Fort Smith, AR

We know how overwhelming it can be to learn about Medicare, sift through your different coverage options and move to a new medical plan. That’s why we are inviting individuals who are eligible for Medicare, or who will soon be eligible, to attend a free Medicare - Getting Started seminar.

Who should attend?

  • People who will soon turn 65 years of age
  • People currently on Medicare who want to learn more about available options

Join us to learn more about Medicare, including:

  • Differences between Medicare Parts A and B
  • Medicare Part D drug coverage
  • Medicare Part C Advantage
  • Medicare supplemental insurance plans
  • Medicare premium assistance that may be available if you qualify

Whether you’re ready to enroll in Medicare now, plan to soon or will continue with a different insurance for the near future, we want you to feel confident about your coverage options. No matter which insurance plan you select, you’ll continue to be cared for by your current primary care physician and have access to the skilled, compassionate caregivers at Mercy, while enjoying predictable medical costs.
