MMAP

CareWell provides counseling to seniors and caregivers regarding senior services and programs.

CareWell Services Southwest provides free MMAP (Medicare & Medicaid Assistance Program) Benefits Counseling to assist seniors in Barry and Calhoun County with Medicare, Medicaid, Part D and other insurance needs. Benefits Counselors have been trained in Medicare, Medicaid, and other insurance products.

We also assist seniors who are unaware of programs they may be eligible for such as the Medicare Savings Program to pay their Medicare Part B premiums, and the Extra Help Low Income Subsidy program which reduces prescription co-pays for eligible seniors.

Through the counseling process for Part D, seniors have the opportunity to learn about other beneficial programs that are not well publicized. Counselors provide unbiased education and assistance and are not connected with any insurance company.

Eligibility Requirements

Participants must be seniors in Barry or Calhoun County with Medicare, Medicaid, Part D and other insurance needs. Adults with disabilities over the age of 18 who are newly qualifying for Medicare due to 24 months of disability are also eligible for MMAP counseling.

Get Started
