Making Sense of Medicare 

The Canyon Sages invite everyone to an informational evening on Medicare – everything you always wanted to know but were too confused to ask. Bruce Johnston, a licensed broker with decades of Medicare experience, has been brought back to, once again, lift the veil on this venerable health care program. The meeting will be held on Zoom, Thursday, November 10, at 6:30pm in time for you to still make your Medicare choices before this year’s December deadline.

  • Currently on Medicare but want to know more; 
  • Are almost Medicare age and need to know everything; 
  • Want to help a parent or friend learn  about the intricacies of Medicare.
