State Health Insurance Assistance Program

People of all ages who have Medicare coverage or will soon be eligible for Medicare can get help at no cost through our State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). SHIP has certified Medicare counselors who will help beneficiaries with their coverage such as:

  • Medicare Supplements
  • Medicare Savings Programs
  • Medicaid
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Plan Comparisons
  • Billing and Claims
  • Rights and Protections
  • Long-term Care options

During the Medicare Open Enrollment period (Oct-Dec) SHIP counselors conduct free health plan comparisons and enroll individuals in the health plan of their choice.

SHIP counselors and volunteers work year round to help beneficiaries with their Medicare issues. They are also available to give educational presentations on Medicare and other related insurance coverage topics.
