Area residents seeking more information about Medicare have an opportunity next week to hear straight from the experts.

The Brighton District Library is holding a Zoom presentation on Thursday, November 16th from 6 to 7pm entitled “What’s New to Medicare 2021”. A team from the Medicare Medicaid Assistance Program will host the presentation covering the changes coming to Medicare for 2021.

These changes include Medicare Part D cost, Medicare Advantage cost and more. The program offers vital information for current Medicare enrollees or family members of a loved one with Medicare as the fall enrollment period is set to end on December 7th.

According to, Medicare plan enrollees can reevaluate their coverage – whether it’s Original Medicare with supplemental drug coverage, or Medicare Advantage – and make changes or purchase new policies if they want to do so.

The Zoom link will be emailed the afternoon of the program. If you don’t see it by 3 p.m., contact the Information Desk at 810-229-6571 ext. 227.
