SHIIP Remains Afloat

 

April 16, 2018



Good news. Congress did not eliminate funding for the nationwide SHIIP programs. It only made sense that the federal government, which created this complicated Medicare system, would continue to pay for a proven program that helps senior citizens make sense of that same system.

Thank you to those of you who reached out to your US senators and members of Congress.

In 2016 the Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) volunteer counselors in Transylvania County alone saved the clients who used our services over $221,000 in 2017. That is $36,000 more than the year before!

Thanks again for the community’s support.
