In just two decades, almost one in every five Virginians will be age 65 or older and on the global scale, by 2050, 1 in 4 persons in developed countries will be over 65. Providing an option of in-home care for senior living redirects from the trauma and loss of continuing environmental patterns that comes from relocation to an elderly care facility while affording one opportunity to age in place and maintain independence.

If you are having trouble with your insurance, the Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program (VICAP) is part of a nationwide network of health insurance assistance programs. Locally, VICAP is sponsored by Senior Connections, The Capital Area Agency on Aging. Trained volunteer counselors assist seniors with Medicare and help seniors and caregivers understand and compare Medicare and other health insurance benefits.
VICAP counselors are not associated with any insurance company and do not sell insurance products. Counseling is non-biased, confidential and free. Counseling is usually by phone, but if necessary, counselors may meet with clients at Senior Connections.
VICAP counselors provide information on:
- Medicare (for seniors and the disabled under 65 with Medicare)
- Medicare Supplemental Insurance
- Medicare Advantage
- Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D)
- Extra help for Part D
- Long Term Care Insurance
- Medicare Savings Programs for help with Medicare premiums, deductibles and co-payments
