What is SHIP?

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) is a federally-funded grant program with the mission to empower, educate, and assist Medicare-eligible individuals, their families, and caregivers through objective outreach, counseling, and training to make informed health insurance decisions that optimize access to care and benefits. SHIPs provide free, in depth, one-on-one benefits counseling and assistance to Medicare beneficiaries, their families, friends, and caregivers. SHIPs operate in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands and are funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). To learn more about the SHIPs and to find your local program please visit the national SHIP Technical Assistance Center .
