KCSC is funded by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) to serve eligible Medicare beneficiaries, which include 65+ seniors and adults, aged 21-64, who are living with disabilities. Eligibility is based on the individual’s income and resource guidelines. This program’s goal is to help Medicare beneficiaries enroll into at least one of five “core benefits”, including: Medicare Part D Extra Help (Low Income Subsidy – LIS); Medicare Savings Programs (MSP); Medicaid; SNAP; and/or LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program).
For this program, KCSC has partnered with the Chinese Culture and Community Service Center (CCACC) and the Association for Vietnamese Americans (AVA) enabling KCSC’s BEC to serve provide bilingual and bicultural services to Korean, Chinese, and Vietnamese Medicare beneficiaries.
