Ferguson, MO. —Medicare answers have just moved to the neighborhood. CLAIM, the official state health insurance assistance program, has officially named Missouri Home Therapy as a partner, joining a statewide network dedicated to providing help with Medicare issues.
As such, Missouri Home Therapy will provide a home for in-person meetings and access to equipment such as a computer and telephone. Trained volunteers will work out of the location to provide free Medicare insurance counseling and assistance to area Medicare beneficiaries.
“Missouri Home Therapy’s new partnership provides a ‘home base’ for volunteers in the area,” said Carol Beahan, director of the CLAIM program. “These locations increase local access to Medicare education and assistance. We’re excited and proud to have Missouri Home Therapy join our team.”
CLAIM leads a network of volunteers and organizations in Missouri dedicated to providing help with Medicare issues. CLAIM provides free and confidential Medicare assistance through a network of more than 280 certified volunteers. These volunteers answer questions about Medicare benefits, options and changes.
CLAIM was founded in 1993 and has helped Missourians save millions in out-of-pocket expenses by helping beneficiaries understand their Medicare benefits and by providing enrollment assistance.
The nonprofit program receives financial assistance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal Medicare agency, and the Missouri Department of Insurance. Services are provided by Primaris, a Columbia-based health care consulting firm.
