RIPIN is a nonprofit organization that offers free consumer assistance by phone for healthcare and special education. Our staff can help answer questions and troubleshoot problems when it comes to health insurance, no matter type of coverage you have. And if you need to get coverage, we can help with that, too! RIPIN can also help you navigate the world of special education, including help with 504 plans, IEPs, distance learning support and more. RIPIN staff are peer professionals – over two thirds of our team care for a loved one with special healthcare and education needs.
