SHIIP Available During The COVID-19 Outbreak
Last updated 4/8/2020 at 2:55pm
The Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), a Medicare educational and information service founded in 1986, remains available during the COVID-19 outbreak. Using expanded technology, the beneficiary can visualize the counselor and the information just as though the counseling session was face-to-face in the SHIIP office at the Transylvania County Extension Service.
The beneficiary does need to have access to a computer for this virtual service. Also offered are appointments for phone-to-phone service with a local counselor by calling (828) 884-3109 or by calling the SHIIP call center located in Raleigh at (855) 408-1212.
SHIIP provides accurate, unbiased information about Medicare enrollment, benefits, claims and Medicare-related products.
