The State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) provides assistance with access in public and private benefits. Medicare, Medicaid, private and other public programs can be confusing to the average community member; SHIP volunteer counselors are here to provide one-on-one assistance. Counselors can assist in comparing supplemental insurances, understanding policies, and applying for assistance. Information and assistance in filling out prescription drug discount program applications is also available.
Individual must be over the age of sixty or disabled. Family members and caregivers are also eligible for services.
