Help filing for Medicare or using specific services can be found on the official Medicare website, through third party advocacy groups such as AARP or through local country health services offices. Many local offices provide translators and aids to help individuals fill out Medicare forms and understand available rights.
Local health services offices are one of the best places to obtain help with Medicare because the employees there are trained on all levels of the Medicare process. The AARP website contains numerous articles explaining the ways Medicare affects retired persons, and it features both text-based and video explanations of commonly confusing terms and legislation. However, the information here is based on national laws and requirements, and thus may not always contain the right level of detail for specific situations.
The Medicare website contains numerous help resources for each aspect of the Medicare system. Many forms are available as free downloads on the site, along with instructions on how to fill them out and mail them to the correct offices. The site also features directories of local health care agencies, along with contact information and hours of operation. Tutorials and answers to frequently asked questions are also available on the site.
