ENROLLMENT
OCT. 15 – DEC. 7

Review Your Medicare Needs for 2019

During Medicare Open Enrollment, from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, you have an opportunity to carefully look at your current Medicare coverage for 2019. Our Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program (HICAP) provides free, individualized counseling and plan comparisons to make sure you are getting the most out of Medicare.

Make an appointment to review your 2019 Medicare Health and Drug Plans at one of our Annual HICAP Enrollment Clinics across Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties listed below. Studies regularly find that people can save money and improve coverage by switching plans.

HICAP does not sell, endorse, or recommend insurance products.
