Medicare boot camp

Join a community conversation about Medicare on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., in the Brubeck Room at Wilton Library. This discussion will provide information for those who will be new to Medicare in the near future. Learn the “ins and outs” of Medicare enrollment and how to avoid mistakes that can be costly. Most importantly, bring questions of your own.

There will be brief presentations by Nancy Lombard, long-term options specialist and CHOICES (Connecticut’s programs for Health insurance, Outreach, Information and Eligibility Screening) counselor for Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging, and Lauren Hughes, coordinator of senior services for the Wilton Department of Social Services.
