Need Help Navigating the Medicare Maze?

Medicare is the federally funded health care program for people 65 and over, for those who have been receiving social security disability benefits for 24 months, and for those diagnosed with ALS or permanent kidney disease.  Medicare maintains a national website, www.medicare.gov, where you can find out the most up to date information about your Medicare benefits, rights, and responsibilities.   To enroll in Medicare, or to find information related to Social Security benefits, contact your local Social Security office or go online at www.ssa.gov

Medicare 101 Sessions 

Our Aging and Disability Resource Counselors hold ongoing, scheduled Medicare 101 Sessions at each of our community centers. These provide a base of knowledge about Medicare to help you make a better informed decision about your health care coverage choices. Call your local Center to sign up for one today!

State Health Insurance Assistance program (SHIP)

SHIP services are free, confidential, and available to older people, as well as people who have Medicare due to a disability. We are always in need of volunteers to assist with this program - contact us today to find out more!

The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA)

MIPPA is specifically designed to help low-income seniors and persons with disabilities to apply for two programs that help pay for their Medicare costs.

Stop Medicare Fraud           

We can provide you, or your group, with information about Medicare fraud – and how to prevent it.  Medicare fraud costs Medicare billions of dollars every year.  It can cost you higher Medicare premiums, deductibles, and co-payments.  Losses due to fraud may also prevent Medicare from offering more services and better coverage.

Your Medicare number can be used to bill Medicare for services and supplies you didn’t need or want, services and supplies your doctor did not order, services and supplies you can’t use, and services and supplies you did not receive.

Senior Medicare Patrols

SMP's empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families and caregivers to prevent, detect and report health care fraud, errors and abuse through outreach, counseling and education.
