For New York Professionals
The Medicare Rights Center wants to help New York professionals like you do the very best for your clients with Medicare, and offers several services designed specifically for you.
A special Technical Assistance Helpline for the New York State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) offers unbiased, up-to-date technical assistance to New York State Health Insurance Information Counseling Assistance Programs (HIICAP) coordinators and counselors eight hours a day, five days a week.
Every month, health care professionals representing community and advocacy groups, businesses and government agencies gather as part of the New York Medicare Savings Coalition. The Coalition seeks to increase awareness of, access to, and enrollment in health care assistance programs for low-income New Yorkers with Medicare. Become a deputized agent and learn how you can help your clients apply for Medicare Savings Programs.
The Medicare Rights Center also offers training sessions for New York City health care professionals to help keep them abreast of the latest developments in Medicare, and how the changes affect their staff and clients.
