Medicare 101

To Register: Medicare 101

Tuesday, June 18th at 8:30 am, presented via Zoom.

Speaker: Mary Klabo

Program Summary:

Medicare 101 explains a very complicated topic in an easily understood manner. This presentation explains the different parts of Medicare (A, B, C and D), the services covered, eligibility requirements, the many different enrollment periods, and the additional insurance coverage options in addition to Medicare benefits.

As the work force ages, more and more people are seeking information about Medicare from their employer's human resource professionals. As Medicare benefits and the supplemental insurance markets have evolved, this presentation will give human resource professionals a better understanding of Medicare and how they can assist their colleagues as they prepare to enroll.

With this understanding human resource professionals can help employees avoid the risks and penalties the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services can assess if enrollment is not done correctly and in a timely manner. 

Key Takeaways:

Medicare 101 will give human resource professionals an intermediate level of understanding with which to assist employees who are seeking guidance on how and when to enroll in Medicare.

About the Speaker:

With a bachelor's degree is in communications, I have worked in some capacity of health care for most of my life. One of my most fulfilling experiences involved helping veterans get medical care the VA was unable to provide. Another involved working with hospital blood banks to ensure they had an adequate supply of blood products. As an older-than-average student, I obtained an MBA from the University of Mary. Most recently I became licensed to sell accident and health insurance in North Dakota. As the community outreach manager at NextBlue of North Dakota, I truly enjoy writing educational materials and explaining the complex subject of Medicare in a way that people can understand.
