San Jose, June 16, 2015: The Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy program (HICAP) of Sourcewise invites the public to its Open House on Oct 2, 2015. During the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., attendees have the opportunity to tour the new satellite office and speak with Medicare state-certified counselors.

As the first to pilot the nationwide network of insurance assistance programs, the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy program is a leader in delivering objective information and assistance to those persons who have questions about Medicare. Through personalized counseling sessions and community education, counselors help their clients make informed decisions about their health benefits.

“My counselor continued to call and follow up until the issue was promptly resolved. Without his help and vast expertise, I’m sure I would not have coverage to this day. I wholeheartedly recommend them and am eternally grateful,” said Anita Gong, after her face-to-face counseling session.

As part of local outreach in South County to offer assistance to those in need, Sourcewise is conducting several outreach efforts including an ongoing free educational series in Morgan Hill. “We are interested in learning more about how we could serve your needs and are excited to meet you at the open house,” says Rosie Jimenez, Director of South County services.

  • Medicare Basics
  • Coordinated Care Initiative
  • Understanding Long Term Care Insurance
