Senior citizens frequently need counseling and assistance to make wise choices in selecting their health care plans. Every State, plus Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia, has a health insurance counseling program that can give free information and assistance on Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, long term care, supplemental insurance, and other health insurance benefits.
Thirteen Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) provide health insurance assistance to beneficiaries throughout Alabama. You can reach the Insurance Counselor for your county by calling 1-800-243-5463. The call is free.
