East Meadow, NY — On May 16th Legislator Tom McKevitt joined with Legislators Michael Giangregorio and John Ferretti to sponsor a “Medicare Made Clear Event” at the East Meadow Public Library.
This event helped people who are enrolled or seeking to enroll in Medicare to learn about the benefits that they are eligible for and the different options that are available. In 2022, it was recorded that over sixty-five million people were enrolled in a Medicare health plan, leaving an abundance of people nation-wide to try to figure out how to navigate this complex system and all its intricacies by themselves. Medicare is a federal health insurance that has many complex rules, regulations, and paths within the healthcare system that its users must navigate.
This program was led by Joy Poupko, who is an experienced Medicare advisor and senior health insurance representative. This event was designed to help anyone who is either planning to be or already is enrolled in a Medicare health program and answered questions about the fundamentals, coverage, options, enrollment, and different plans within the Medicare system. After the presentation given by Poupko, there was time for the attendees to ask her any questions that were remaining.
