Medicare class offered at Portland Community College

A Medicare 101 class will soon be offered at the Portland Community College Newberg Center. Presented via Interactive video conference, the Saturday class is sponsored by the Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance program.

“We have these classes quite frequently at various venues, but this is the first time it has been offered in Newberg through PCC,” said Donna Delikat, SHIBA training officer.

The course will cover the basics of Medicare: enrolling in Part A hospital insurance, Part B medical insurance, Part D prescription drug insurance, as well as Medicare Advantage plans and Medigap policies.

“We also cover timelines so folks don’t miss critical deadlines that could end up in a delay of benefits or lifetime penalties,” Delikat said. “It is of great benefit for all Medicare beneficiaries to review their health and drug coverage each year so as to avoid surprises in January. There are plans that are no longer available, new as well as changes each year.”

The class is limited to 25 participants and will run from 10 a.m. to Noon. Call 503-947-7088 to reserve a seat.
