Insurance Program

The Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counsels Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about:

  • Medicare Health Coverage                                                                       

  • Medicare supplements                                                             

  • Medicare Advantage                                                                       

  • Medicare Part D.                                                                                        


The counselors provide free and unbiased information regarding Medicare health care products. We also help people recognize and prevent Medicare billing errors and possible fraud and abuse through our NC SMP Program.  Extra Help application assistance can also be provided to lower prescription cost for Medicare Beneficiaries.
