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.
For assistance please call the VICAP Intake Line at 804-343-3014 to leave your question or a brief description of your problem along with your name and phone number. A counselor will contact you in the order in which your call was received. If you would like a speaker for your group, please leave your request on the intake line. You may also send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
