Bruce Muller, SHIP Counselor

Medicare 101

SHIP gives free, accurate, objective and impartial information about health insurance.  They have 300 volunteers who receive 25 hours of training.  SHIP gives no recommendations and has programs to help low income clients.

Some information that we should know is:

  • social security will be sending out new cards starting in April with new numbers.  They will no longer use social security numbers.
  • open enrollment begins October 15 and ends December 7
  • we should be careful to sign up at the correct time for Medicare, when we are eligible or we could get a penalty

Mr. Muller encouraged everyone to contact SHIP for assistance.

Thank you to everyone that attended, we had 36 attendees this month, see you October 19!
