From Area VI Agency on Aging

The Area VI Agency on Aging is offering several different classes this spring to try and meet needs we work with every day though phone calls. We charge a nominal fee, not to make a profit but to help defray the cost of making the class available. All class fees can be offered at a reduced price on a sliding scale according to income. You can call our office to inquire about the reduced fee, the class schedule or content, or to sign up for a class.

Medicare 101 is a 1-hour class designed for those approaching Medicare. We can help you with the choices available and also help avoid late penalties. Dates scheduled are as follows: 

April 24 (Dixon senior center) 

May 6 (St. Luke Ronan) 

May 22 (Plains) 

May 29 (Tribal Health, Polson)

June 5 (Arlee),

All Medicare 101 classes are 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. to accommodate folks on their lunch hour. The cost is $20.
