How To Lower Medicare Costs

Clewiston, FL (March 9, 2018)— Medicare beneficiaries looking for ways to save money on health care are invited to attend a free seminar on Wednesday, March 21.  The Florida B. Thomas Library will host “How to Lower Your Medicare Costs” from noon until 1:00 p.m. at the Florida B. Thomas Library (formerly the Harlem Community Library) which is located at 1010 J Harlem Academy Ave. in Clewiston. No registration is necessary.

The presentation will feature professionally trained counselors of the SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program.  The Florida Department of Elder Affairs’ SHINE program provides free, unbiased information and assistance for Florida Medicare beneficiaries year-round as they carefully evaluate their health care options.  SHINE is administered locally by the Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida.
