About Our Counselors
MMAP counselors are specialists trained in Medicare and Medicaid law and regulations, health insurance counseling and relevant insurance products. MMAP counselors are not connected with any insurance company, nor are they licensed to sell insurance. Their purpose is to serve you objectively and confidentially. Currently, MMAP has hundreds of highly trained and certified counselors. These dedicated and compassionate people, answer questions and act as guides through the Medicare and Medicaid programs. MMAP counselors have assisted thousands of Michigan’s older adults and people with disabilities and saved them many millions of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses, bringing peace of mind to those who are often confused when they deal with unfamiliar and difficult government systems.
