Free Health Insurance Counseling

Making decisions and being informed about important topics such as Medicare, long term care options, caregiver support, health care fraud, and more can be complicated or confusing. The good news is that the Senior LinkAge Line is here to support you! We provide unbiased, objective information, assistance, and helpful resources on a variety of topics.

We offer one-on-one appointments to help older adults navigate the often-complex process of enrolling in Medicare or supplemental health insurance policies. Currently, out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our staff, volunteers, and community partners, Senior LinkAge Line has replaced our in-person appointments with free phone-based appointments to provide the same personalized attention and assistance. You can schedule your own Medicare Health Insurance Counseling appointment . Select a date and time that work best for you and be sure to bring your questions!

In addition, join us for a virtual presentation on Medicare 101, Health Care Fraud and Scams, Health Care Directives, or How the Senior LinkAge Line Can Help You. Watch, listen, and get your questions answered from the comfort of home. You can find and register for these and other upcoming presentations.

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers. Call the Senior LinkAge Line at (800) 233-2433.
