According to the PRWeb article through medicaresupplementplans.com entitled “California Health Insurance Assistance Program Awarded 2009 Grant Funding”, California health insurance assistance programs are expected to receive about $3 million in grants to help Medicare beneficiaries in need of information on health insurance topics.
This is an ongoing effort to better assist these citizens who are often lacking comprehensive and accurate information about their health care options. The funds being used are part of a $35.8 million grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The grants to California health insurance assistance programs are part of the 1st installment of funding that began in April ‘09 and will end in March ‘10.
Seniors often underestimate how time consuming researching and understanding their benefits can be. And sometimes it gets really complicated. These funds will support programs designed to make this process for them a little easier. The assistance is personalized and local while providing a wide range of health insurance information best suited to each individual.
