The mission of the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) is to help Arkansans save money and make informed decisions about Medicare. SHIIP counsels Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about Medicare, MEDIGAP policies, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D (drug plans) and Long-term care insurance.
Certified and trained Medicare Beneficiary Advisors provide free and unbiased information regarding Medicare health care products, helping recipients to save thousands of dollars annually on Medicare premiums and co-pays. Recruiting and training volunteers throughout the state to assist Medicare Beneficiaries is another part of SHIIP’s mission. SHIIP staff and trained volunteers are available for group and community event presentations.
