WHAT IS APPRISE?
 
APPRISE is a free health insurance counseling program designed to help all Pennsylvanians with Medicare.  Counselors are specially trained staff and volunteers who can answer your questions about Medicare and provide you with objective, easy-to-understand information about Medicare.  APPRISE can help you if you are new to Medicare, during the Annual Open Enrollment Period, which is October 15th through December 7th of every year, and during the Annual Disenrollment Period, which is January 1st through February 14th of every year.   Call Sandy Fennell, APPRISE Coordinator,  at (724) 548-3290 to schedule an appointment.
 
APPRISE can also help you save money by determining eligibility for the Low Income Subsidy (LIS), which can lower your prescription co-pays and premiums and cover the cost of the ‘donut hole” (coverage gap), or your eligibility for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP), which can help you lower or eliminate your Part B premium and possibly help with the payment of your Medicare Part A and Part B cost-sharing.  The Pennsylvania Health Law Project (PHLP), which is a partner of the APPRISE Program, can also provide information on these programs, in addition to providing information on access to healthcare for low-income consumers, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.  You can assess their link at http://www.phlp.org/.
