SHINE Medicare Counseling

The public is invited to attend a Medicare Basics presentation on Saturday, September 18, 10:00am-12:00pm at the Safety Harbor Public Library. The “Medicare Basics” presentation, conducted by specially trained volunteers of the SHINE Program, will provide detailed information on the basics of the Medicare program.
