Medicare State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)

This program offers Medicare 101 classes, as well as up-to-date, objective information and guidance for help with Medicare enrollment, Medicare benefits, Advantage Plans, Medigap policies, Part D Prescription Drug Plans, and the appeals process. 

Medicare clients contacted our office through phone and face to face meetings 2181 times during 2015 to ask for assistance. As the cost of living increases seniors struggle to pay their prescriptions, healthcare, food and energy costs, MIPPA continues to be instrumental in helping these disadvantage seniors to regain their economic footing. Specifically, this program provides a way for seniors to put upwards of $150 back into their pockets every month, increasing their quality of life. 

In 2015, we completed 87 Medicare Savings Program (pays for the part B premium) saving the client a minimum of $122 per month and 99 Low Income Subsidy (pays part d premium, deductibles and lowers the cost of prescriptions) applications saving the client and average of $300 per month. This averages to about $485,000 going back into the pockets of our Pueblo seniors every year.
