Currently, the Sourcewise HICAP is offering a series of educational courses at the Morgan Hill Community & Cultural Center. These courses will help you navigate topics including: upcoming changes to Medicare in 2016, choosing the right prescription coverage, whether long term care is a viable option, and Medicare savings programs.

The series began in August and will continue through December. Remaining courses available are:
