What is SHIIP? The Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) provides free one-on- one counseling, education and information to individuals with Medicare of all ages. SHIIP assists with applications for Medicare subsidy programs like Medicare Savings Program and Extra Help, recruits and trains a volunteer network throughout the state to provide in-person information, assistance, and presentations, as well as help at community events and health fairs.
