The Haywood Jackson Volunteer Center/North Carolina Seniors Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) will host a Medicare 101 talk at 1 p.m. Wednesday May 21, at the Senior Resource Center located at 81 Elmwood Way, Waynesville.

The presentation will be given by John Chicoine, NCSHIIP counselor.  Chicoine will cover information about what happens when a person receives Medicare, what options he or she has with Medicare, supplements and advantage plans and prescription plans.

The North Carolina SHIIP provides non-biased information so consumers can make informed decisions on how they want to manage their health care.
