Our SHIP (State Health Insurance Information Assistance Program) Counselors provide information and answers to your questions about Medicare, Medigap plans, and long-term care insurance plans. We also help beneficiaries, and their families understand the Medicare prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D) options available in West Virginia. In addition, SHIP counselors can help you understand medical bills, health insurance claims, and Medicare summary notices.
Our SHIP counselors help you understand what the Medicare program and your supplemental insurance plan coverage can include. If you are signing up soon or if you have been in the program for years, we can help you understand what out-of-pocket costs are involved, what coverage you have, and how to compare supplemental insurance plans to help ensure that you are making the best choices for your budget – and your healthcare needs. We can provide this information quickly and easily in a way you can understand.
Because Medicare Part D prescription copays and other out-of-pocket costs can change each year, it is important to get the most reliable and up-to-date information. Our counselors receive updates and training as changes happen that may affect your benefits. We can also provide information about drug discount programs and other options to help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.
