We Can Help With 75 plan options and an alphabet soup of program titles, applying for Arizona healthcare insurance can be a daunting task. Nonprofit Medicare Planning Solutions is offering three free programs that make selecting your best program simple: 1. Medicare Workshops Our MPS staff and highly experienced volunteer professional health insurance agents present Medicare educational workshops to groups throughout the community. They attend health fairs, expos and visit senior social functions throughout Arizona. Our Medicare Workshops are strictly noncommercial. There are absolutely no sales presentations.

Once again, as is the case with our Medicare Workshops, Medicare Counseling is strictly noncommercial. There are absolutely no sales presentations. Read more about Medicare Counseling . . . 3. Medicaid Assessments and Registration We help the most financially challenged Arizona seniors apply for and maintain registration for Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) programs including Medicaid, Medical Assistance and Medicare Savings (QMB – Qualified Medicare Beneficiary, SLMB – Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary, QI or QI-1 – Qualifying Individual and QDWI – Qualified Disabled & Working Individuals). These programs eliminate or reduce premiums, penalties, co-pays and coinsurance. In addition, MPS aids low-income seniors with obtaining Low Income Subsidy (LIS) coverage for Medicare Part D prescription drug costs and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance) program benefits. If you think you may qualify for low-cost or no-cost Arizona healthcare coverage, we would like to help you evaluate your options and apply. Please contact us.
