You can learn more about Medicare at a forum that’s planned for this afternoon at the Lower Columbia CAP offices on Commerce Avenue in Longview. The forum will run from 2 to 4 pm; a long-time insurance benefits advisor will open things, providing an introduction and overview on Medicare. Clarence Blaine will also have information on people already on Medicare, and who may be thinking about switching their Part C or Part D coverage. He’ll also be talking about the impacts of the Affordable Care Act on Medicare. Informational packets will be available, along with other advisors. Today’s “Medicare 101 Forum” is free and open to anyone who is interested.
