Hours are typically 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Individual and family appointments are scheduled as needed. Heritage also provides caregiver support and community education.
Medicare and supplemental insurance including Medicaid and most private policies cover the program cost, so there is no out-of-pocket expense for you.
