Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP)

This is a federally funded program available statewide to serve Medicare beneficiaries, their families, caregivers, and soon-to- be retirees.

This is a FREE service providing unbiased Medicare counseling and support!

Our certified SHIP Counselors offer one-on- one counseling and assistance for Medicare, Medigap, Medicare Advantage, and other related aging and disability health insurance options. SHIP counselors also provide information and assistance for beneficiaries with limited income to apply for benefit programs, such as Extra Help, Medicare Savings Programs (QMB, SLMB, QI-1), and prescription assistance programs. We are here to educate, advocate, counsel and empower Medicare beneficiaries to make informed healthcare decisions to meet their needs.
