Hickory – Join Carolina Caring for a presentation by Knowhow’s David Critchlow entitled “Navigating Medicare: What You Need to Know” via Zoom on September 16 at 10am to learn more about choosing Medicare, which can be one of the most baffling and consequential decisions we make as we grow older. Missteps are common and can result in gaps in care, higher costs and life-time penalties.

Through David Critchlow’s decision-support program – “Knowhow” – David helps older adults navigate what they don’t know about Medicare whether they are contemplating Medicare as they turn 65; transitioning from an employer-based health plan; or thinking about changing the Medicare coverage they have – which may make seniors subject to timing rules and other regulations that can take them by surprise.
