Help with Medicare Questions

August 16, 2017

For people who are eligible for Medicare, each state and district maintains a State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) funder through the Department of Health and Human Services to provide advice and advocacy on Medicare issues.  A directory of SHIPs is available at


SHIPs can advise on the original Medicare program, Medicare Advantage (Part C), Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D), Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) policies and long term care insurance.  They can ask discuss the ways that Medicare interacts with and can be made more affordable by other programs, including Medicaid, the Medicare Savings Program, and the Low Income Subsidy.
