Navigating the Medicare Maze

Presenter Josh Best of Cornerstone Senior Services says, “When folks turn 65 and are able to sign up for Medicare, they have one opportunity to make a decision on health care. This decision, good or bad, will affect them the rest of their life. I want to make sure that the residents of Barren County have all the information provided us by the Federal Government so that everyone can make an informed decision that will protect their transition into senior adulthood.”
