Health insurance agency offering free Medicare orientation classes in Reno and Carson City

The Medicare Store, a Nevada-based health insurance agency that provides cost-free personalized Medicare advice, is expanding their services to Northern Nevada.

The local Reno team is celebrating the grand opening of their new Reno location at 1870 Vasser Street, Suite 2. This location is across from the Social Security office and near the main post office.

The grand opening of the new Reno location will take place on June 10 at 11:00 a.m. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony and a short speech by the President and CEO of The Medicare Store Calvin Bagley which will be followed by refreshments and tours of the new office.

The Medicare Store will also be offering free Medicare Orientation classes in both Reno and Carson City every month, indefinitely. There will be classes in both English and Spanish.

Class attendees will learn how Medicare works and what to expect with each of the plan options. They will also learn about Medicare Parts A, B, C and D and about Medicare Supplements (Medigap), how to maximize their Medicare benefits, verify if their doctor accepts their plan and how to save money on their prescriptions.
