Medicare 101 Virtual Informational Meetings in 2021

The Bayfield County Elder Benefits Specialist, Marianne Johnson will be offering “Medicare 101”
presentations for those who are approaching age 65 or who will soon be on Medicare. These
presentations will introduce attendees to the basics of Medicare, as well as give you the
information you need to know before making decisions about enrolling in Medicare.

Information provided will help you understand what Medicare options would best suit your
needs. The Elder Benefit Specialist is an unbiased source for information and takes pride in
helping people get the information they need to make an informed decision about benefits.
If you are turning 65 this year, attending one of these trainings is strongly encouraged. This
training will give you enough information to understand your Medicare options and be ready to
make decisions about your Medicare when it is time to do so.

All presentations currently scheduled will be held virtually via Zoom. Presentations will either
start at noon or 6:00pm and will last about an hour depending on the questions asked by the
audience. Please register as soon as possible in advance as there are written materials that
would be helpful to reference during the presentation that will need to be mailed or printed off
by the attendee. There is no charge for the presentations. Call Marianne at 1-866-663-3607 or
email marianne.johnson@bayfieldcounty.wi.gov to register.
