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.
Become a SHIP certified volunteer and work with your Lee County Council on Aging!
Has Medicare ever intrigued you? Do you like to learn, grow, and teach what you've learned to others? Do you enjoy a meaningful volunteer opportunity? If you answered yes to these questions then talk with our Lee County SHIP Coordinator, our very own Samantha Harazin, to learn more.
