NAPCA Medicare booklets
NAPCA developed and translated two Medicare handbooks into Chinese, Khmer (Cambodian), Korean, Samoan, and Vietnamese. The first booklet, What is Medicare?, gives a general overview of Medicare, including what healthcare services it covers, who qualifies, and how to sign up for Medicare. The second booklet, Get Help Paying for Your Prescription Drug and Healthcare Costs, explains different programs available to help seniors pay for their healthcare costs. Booklets produced with support from a generous grant from the Walmart Foundation.
