Medicare counseling is offered, by appointment only, every Wednesday at the Senior Center (in the community center).

If you are already on Medicare and need to review your plan (each year), we can help. If you are turning 65 this year and need help or have questions, we can help. If you are receiving Social Security disability benefits, you are probably eligible for Medicare and we can help.

You may be eligible for extra help if your income falls below a certain amount. Again, we can help.

Call to make an appointment by contacting the San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging in Pagosa Springs. Our experienced and talented Medicare counselors are here to help and the service is free. Call 264-0502.
