Part D Assistance

We encourage all Medicare beneficiaries to review their choices for 2020 to ensure enrollment in the plan that best fits their needs. HICAP Services of Northern California offers free and unbiased information and advocacy for people with Medicare.

Our services are available to residents in El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties regardless of income or age.

For assistance with Part D plan comparisons during the Annual Election Period (aka Open Enrollment), HICAP will host or participate in Part D Enrollment Clinics, individual one-on-one appointments, and plan comparison by mail/email.

Plan Comparison By Mail

If you are unable to attend a Part D Open Enrollment Clinic or to schedule an appointment with a HICAP Counselor, you may be able to request assistance through the mail (or email). Please print and complete our 2020 Worksheet and return it to the appropriate address below. You can also use the Google Form below to submit your Worksheet (NOTE: if you are using a public computer, do not save any information on that computer. Make sure to close the window once you are done, clear the browser history, and log out of your session. Take special care of your information if you are using a public wi-fi source for your Internet connection, as your information may not be secure while using such sources.). HICAP will compare your 2020 Medicare options using the Medicare website and provide you with the results. You can enroll in the plan of your choice by contacting the plan directly.

Each person with Medicare in your household should complete a separate Worksheet. It is very important that you include your list of prescriptions. If you run out of space, please add a new sheet. You can also ask your pharmacist to print out a list of your current medications and attach the pharmacy list instead of writing it out.

Your 2020 Worksheet must be postmarked by Friday, November 22, 2019 for HICAP assistance. HICAP assistance may not be available for Worksheets postmarked after this date. You may also fax this form to (916) 376-8795.

Help with Prescription Costs: The Low Income Subsidy (LIS), also known as Extra Help, is a government program that helps with Medicare Part D prescription drug costs and plan premiums. If you would like HICAP to screen you for eligibility, check the box marked "Yes, please assessment my eligibility for Extra Help" and include your gross monthly income. HICAP can help you to apply for the program if you appear to be eligible.
