Trying to make heads or tails of health care, with its seemingly endless changes and complexity, is enough to make just about anyone queasy.
Against that backdrop, a retirement planning expert who speaks with clarity and authority is the perfect antidote. On Wednesday, January 22nd, Greg Kurinec of Bentron Financial Group leads an in-depth discussion on Health Care in Retirement at the Oak Brook Public Library, 600 Oakbrook Road.
In his free presentation, which begins at 7 p.m., Kurinec will provide detail of the four parts of Medicare: Parts A (Hospital Insurance), Part B (Medical Insurance), Part C (Medicare Advantage), and Part D (Prescription Drugs).
He will also share his knowledge of Medicare Supplements and the different plans that are available. In addition, students will receive an overview of long-term care insurance and the four strategies used to protect yourself from the high costs of long-term care.
To pre-register for the event, please call the library at 630-368-7725.
