During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Seniors are a growing and vital segment of our community. Elder Law & Advocacy seeks to protect seniors by providing legal advice and advocacy. We serve seniors by helping them to defend their legal rights and preserve their respected place in the community.
Elderly and disabled residents of San Diego and Imperial counties have a valuable resource when it comes to making decisions about Medicare.
Elder Law & Advocacy’s HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) program is staffed by trained counselors who can give Medicare beneficiaries the information they need to make informed decisions about their healthcare choices. All HICAP counselors are registered with the California Department of Aging and provide unbiased, impartial information and counseling. We do not sell, endorse, promote or recommend commercial products or services.
Our staff attorney provides representation and counsel and advice, including appeals. In addition to Medicare, we also provide counseling on:
* Long Term Care Insurance Plans
* Programs to help to pay for premiums, drugs and medical costs
* Choices for Medi-Cal and Medicare dual beneficiaries
* Medicare for those that work beyond age 65
* Retiree medical plan coordination with Medicare
* Appeals and Grievances
* Medicare Fraud Referrals
