HICAP (the Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program) provides free and objective information and counseling about Medicare. Volunteer counselors can help you understand your specific rights and health care options. HICAP also offers free educational presentations to groups of Medicare beneficiaries, their families and/or providers on a variety of Medicare and other health insurance related topics.

Note: California Health Advocates supports HICAP through our membership program, training, technical assistance and educational materials, yet, CHA and HICAP are separate programs. HICAP is run through the California Department on Aging, which also manages their 1-800-434-0222 hotline.
