Currently, MMAP has hundreds of highly trained and certified counselors. Emphatically these dedicated and compassionate people, many of them older adults, answer questions and act as guides through the Medicare Medicaid Assistance Programs. MMAP counselors have assisted many thousands of Michigan’s citizens and saved them many millions of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses. Above all, bringing peace of mind to those who are often confused and frightened when they deal with unfamiliar and difficult government systems.
