All About MAP

Since its creation in 1985, the Massachusetts Mecicare Advocacy Project has provided advice and free legal representation to thousands of elderly and disabled Massachusetts residents who have been wrongfully denied Medicare coverage.

During the last fiscal year, MAP won more than $850,000 in Medicare benefits that had been illegally denied or terminated. MAP was successful in more than 90 percent of its administrative appeals.

MAP provides the services of attorneys and paralegals who are experienced in Medicare advocacy.

Throughout its existance, MAP has engaged in major outreach efforts. These include outreach to Medicare beneficiaries and training for employees of social service agencies, long-term care facilities, and home-health agencies.

MAP is funded by the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation with appropriated funds from the Legislature.
