By Douglas Flynn / August 7, 2015

Golden Pond Assisted Living is hosting an "Increase Your Medicare IQ" educational seminar next month.

The event, presented by TheMedicareAdvisors.com, will take place from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 15 at Golden Pond (50 West Street, Hopkinton, MA). Refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m.

Leading the discussion will be Russ Swallow, a certified senior advisor and licensed insurance advisor. The seminar will cover topics for people signing up for Medicare for themselves or a loved one for the first time such as:

- What does Part A cover?
- What isn't covered?
- What are the deductibles? Co-pays?
- What about Parts B, C and D?
- What is Medigap?

Also up for discussion are topics for those on Medicare now, such as:

- Have your prescriptions changed?
- When did you last review your options?
- Has your physician network changed?

The seminar will also cover some plan specifics, such as which plan has:

- No co-pays
- No deductibles
- No gatekeepers
- Every doctor in the country that accepts Medicare
- Every hospital in the country that accepts Medicare

There will also be discussion on the issues if you don't sign up for Parts B or D when you first become eligible, such as:

- Why is there a penalty to sign up later?
- How do you avoid the penalty?
- What forms are needed to sign up now?
