Medicare Medicaid Assistance Program:
The Medicare Medicaid Assistance Program is available to help seniors and caregivers make informed decisions about healthcare and prescription benefits. With the many changes in Medicare last year and in the coming year, our MMAP counselors are very busy supporting, enrolling and providing guidance to seniors.
MMAP counselors are volunteers who have received specialized training in Medicare and Medicaid law and regulations, health insurance counseling and relevant insurance products. MMAP counselors are not connected with any insurance company, nor are they licensed to sell insurance. Their purpose is to serve you objectively and confidentially.
To get assistance from one of Senior Services MMAP Counselors call MMAP's toll-free help line at 1-800-803-7174 and ask to speak with a MMAP counselor. They will assist you over the phone or meet you in person at a location that is convenient to you. MMAP will provide home visit to home bound beneficiaries.
Our local MMAP counselors also make group presentations on the following topics:
Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage Plans (Part D)
