HICAP - HEALTH INSURANCE COUNSELING & ADVOCACY PROGRAM
A counsellor from the HICAP program gave a very comprehensive overview of Medicare and related healthcare insurance options at the start of the September Advanced/Recurring support group meeting. The presentation, from Ms. Beatriz Nunez, is very timely, just before the Annual Enrollment Period Oct 15 - Dec 7 (AEP) for Medicare. She encouraged everyone to look in detail at the 2024 Medicare and You publication, covering medigap plans (p. 76), Medicare Advantage and Part D (p 122 ff.), and for those needing extra help with drug costs, https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10508.pdf .
HICAP offers individual counselling.
