  • Mission:
  • California Health Advocates (CHA) provides quality Medicare and related healthcare coverage information, education and policy advocacy.

  • Overview:
  • CHA serves Medicare beneficiaries through Medicare information intermediaries, primarily local Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Programs (HICAPs). There are 25 local HICAPs throughout the state serving all 58 counties. Local HICAPs recruit and train volunteers to counsel Medicare beneficiaries about their benefits, options and rights. There are reportedly 700 HICAP Counselors registered with the California Department of Aging.

    Since its inception, CHA has provided training, technical assistance and policy advocacy.

  • History:
  • The organization, initially called the California HICAP Association, was founded in 1997 by HICAP Managers and granted 501(c)(3) status in 1998. Keeping the acronym CHA, we renamed the organization California Health Advocates when we broadened our reach to other organizations. CHA continues to support the work of HICAP members as they counsel Medicare beneficiaries, and also other organizations that serve Medicare beneficiaries.
