General Meeting – October 24, 2016
Michigan Medicare Medicaid Assistance (MMAP) program
Judy Hazle, MI Health Link Project Coordinator, MMAP, Inc.
The MMAP organization provides free local help for people with Medicare. MMAP counselors help the individual understand their Medicare and Medicaid benefits and also understand any new options that might be available. The MMAP counselor will help individuals compare plans, apply for Medicaid or a Medicare Savings program, learn how to watch for scams, and much more.
Many of our members have friends or loved ones who have a mental or physical disability and are on both Medicare and Medicaid. There is a new option in healthcare insurance for those individuals. It is called MI Health Link. Judy will present on this as well. Judy was employed at the Community Mental Health Authority of Clinton, Eaton, Ingham Counties for over 23 years and since then retired. MMAP counselors in your our counties would like to be available for NAMI Metro friends and members.
