VCAAA’s HICAP team tackles Medicare Open Enrollment questions and concerns


Ventura, Calif. – The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging’s Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program (HICAP) is tackling all questions and concerns related to Medicare Open Enrollment by hosting a variety of one-stops throughout Ventura County through December 6th. All services are free and open to the public.

The transition to Medicare can be daunting and understanding plan options and the costs associated with each is often overwhelming. The VCAAA’s HICAP team is made up of highly trained counselors who provide free and unbiased assistance to Medicare recipients. Counseling services vary and are based on individual needs. Other services provided include a full assessment through the VCAAA’s Benefits Enrollment Center to determine eligibility for a variety of other benefits and services.

Medicare Open Enrollment One-stops are currently scheduled in Ventura, Ojai, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Oxnard, Simi Valley, Santa Paula, and Fillmore. For a complete list of dates and times, please visit or call (805) 477-7310 or 1-800-434-0222.

This project was supported, in part by grant number 90SAPG0052-03-00, from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, D.C. 20201.
