Question: Where can I get more information about Medicare and my various health care options?

Answer:

People have choices once enrolled in Medicare. For help in understanding Medicare and the other health care options, visit the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) on-line or call the Hotline (800) 432-4040. SHIP is a free health benefits counseling service for Medicare beneficiaries and their families or caregivers. SHIP counselors are not connected with any insurance company but are specialists trained in Medicare law and regulations and health insurance counseling. SHIP can help you with Medicare eligibility, benefits, cost sharing programs, long term care insurance information, and claim filing.
