Medicare SHIP Assistance

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. We can assist in-person or virtual through teleconference.

As the cost of living increases older adults 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 $203 ($170.10 for Part B, $33 for Part D premium, Part D deductible $480) back into their pockets every month, increasing their quality of life.
