Health Insurance Information Counseling and Assistance Program (HIICAP)

New York State has several programs for those with lower incomes that make it easier to afford health care. These programs may pay part of your monthly costs, offer discounts, or provide full medical coverage. One of these is the Health Insurance Information Counseling & Assistance Program which helps people pick the Medicare plan that is right for them. It also provides information for other related programs. To visit the HIICAP page at the NYS Office of the Aging's website, please click here.

The New York State Caregiving Services 

Services and supports are available for Veterans of any age who are taking care of an older adult, regardless of the older adult's veteran status. For additional information about the New York State Caregiving Program visit their website by clicking here.

Apply for Benefits
