Health Insurance Counseling Program

Effective July 1, 2021, APPRISE’s name will change to Pennsylvania Medicare Education and Decision Insight, or PA MEDI.
Though the name is different, the program will continue to provide accurate, unbiased health insurance counseling at no cost to Medicare beneficiaries who live in Pa.

 

 

Pennsylvania Medicare Education and Decision Insight (formerly APPRISE) is Pennsylvania’s State Health Insurance Program.  It is a health insurance counseling service that helps Medicare beneficiaries understand their Medicare insurance benefits and coverage, compare Medicare prescription drug plans, and complete applications for the government programs that help pay Medicare expenses.  The PA MEDI Coordinator and volunteer counselors provide reliable, unbiased, and easy to understand health insurance information regarding Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, prescription drug coverage, long-term care insurance, and preventive care.  PA MEDI program representatives are also available to assist with filing Medicare appeals.

Become an PA MEDI Volunteer

PA MEDI volunteers are a valuable feature of the PA MEDI program.  Volunteers receive ongoing specialized training and work with the PA MEDI Coordinator to effectively address health insurance issues for Medicare beneficiaries.
