HICAP counseling services are provided by Counselors registered by the California Department of Aging who are acting in good faith to provide information about health insurance policies and benefits to you, the client. This information shall not be construed to be legal advice, and the volunteer HICAP Counselor is generally not liable for acts and omissions in providing counseling to recipients of this service. (W&I Code, Section 9541(f).) If you choose a plan and have difficulty in completing the necessary forms or process for enrollment, the HICAP Counselor will assist you. However, you will be responsible for the actual plan contract. The HICAP Counselor will NOT choose your plan for you.
