Medicare Resources

Answers to questions about Medicare benefits are available on the Medicare website. Should you have difficulties with your Medicare benefits, you may print out the Privacy Act Release Form, complete it, and send it to one of my Illinois offices with supporting documentation.

Insurance For People Under 65

Your coverage may be under the purview of the Illinois State Department of Insurance, the Pension and Welfare Benefits Division of the U. S. Department of Labor (ERISA or self-insured plans), or the state AHCCCS program. Although most of the options are not federally administered, my office can forward your concern to the appropriate agency. Print out the Privacy Act Release Form, complete it, and send it to one of my Illinois offices with supporting documentation.

If You Are Uninsured

For the uninsured, I can provide information to help in obtaining coverage and locating the nearest community health center or sliding scale fee clinic. Please contact one of my Illinois offices for help.

Research Funding into Disease Processes

NIH funding figures are available for the current three year period. For information on specific disease-research studies, print out the Privacy Act Release Form, complete it, and send it to one of my Illinois offices with your request and documentation.
