Medicare Counseling

Tackling the Issue

Our Elder Benefits Specialists (Outreach Caseworkers) are Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) certified.  Trained to help educate you on your Medicare choices, assist in Part D or Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plan enrollments, find ways to help save you money and help you fight appeals or obstacles that may arise.

Our Elder Benefit Specialists are a part of the much larger team of SHIP, a program ran through the Illinois Department on Aging (IDOA), which reaches the entire state of Illinois and works with other state SHIP's as well.
