NY Department for the Aging’s Health Insurance Information and Counseling Program (HIICAP)

NYC Department for the Aging’s Health Insurance Information and Counseling Program (HIICAP)
Website: https://aging.ny.gov/health-insurance-information-counseling-and-assistance-program-hiicap

Approximately 500 trained HIICAP counselors located in local offices for the aging across the state are available to answer New Yorkers’ questions about Medicare, Medicare Advantage programs (managed care), Medicare prescription drug coverage, Medigap, and other health and long term care insurance.

Counseling is also available through a toll-free HIICAP helpline at 1-800-701-0501. Callers will be prompted to state the county in which they need help, and will then be routed to their local HIICAP program to speak with a trained counselor. In most cases, this local program will be the area agency on aging (AAA). There are some AAAs that subcontract the HIICAP program to community agencies so the calls will be sent directly to them. 

HIICAP works directly with Medicare beneficiaries to educate them about the Medicare Program, Medigap policies, Medicaid, Medicare Advantage Plans, Long-term Care Insurance, Low-Income Subsidy Programs, employer-sponsored insurance, and other health insurance programs that are available in New York State.
