Due to COVID-19, SHIIP is not currently accepting in-person appointments. Telephone appointments are still available.
Through the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), LCHC Volunteer Services offers local residents help in understanding the Medicare system and other insurance programs. A trained volunteer is available, by appointment only, to discuss specific insurance issues with individuals.
Are you a Medicare beneficiary confused by the current prescription plan choices? The SHIIP program can help with this aspect of medicare, as well. One of our volunteer will sit with you, in a private appointment, to review all options so that you can make the right choice for your prescription drug plan needs.
To schedule an appointment, call Kristine Kennedy, Volunteer Services Manager, at (641) 774-3226.
(Note: Our SHIIP counselors are currently full and are unable to take any more appointments for open enrollment. If you need assistance, kindly call 1-800-MEDICARE.)
