Medicare Assistance Hotline

Due to COVID-19, the Medicare requirement as a condition of eligibility for Medicaid is currently waived.

If you are turning 65, or you or a member of your household are living with a disability or End Stage Renal Disease, you may be eligible for additional medical benefits or may be required to apply for Medicare in order to keep any benefits you may be receiving.

  • We have trained Medicare Counselors that can provide you with free assistance in applying for Medicare.
  • We can help you review your benefits to see if you need to take action to obtain or keep the health insurance you may be eligible for.

Call 1-800-517-6670.
