APPRISE is Pennsylvania’s State Health Insurance Program. It is a health insurance counseling service that helps Medicare beneficiaries understand their Medicare insurance benefits and coverage, compare Medicare prescription drug plans, and complete applications for the government programs that help pay Medicare expenses. The APPRISE Coordinator and volunteer counselors provide reliable, unbiased, and easy to understand health insurance information regarding Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, prescription drug coverage, long-term care insurance, and preventive care. APPRISE program representatives are also available to assist with filing Medicare appeals.
