Meet with a trained volunteer counselor to help you understand what Medicare does and does not cover; your options concerning Medicare HMOs, supplemental insurance, and Part D prescription drug plans.  Also learn about special assistance programs available to low-income recipients or problem-solve about your current benefits.
