Our Mission: SHIIP educates people with Medicare, assisting seniors and people with disabilities make informed decisions about health insurance.
Because Medicare can be confusing, the State of Nebraska has developed a program to educate older Nebraskans and people with disabilities about their health insurance and increase awareness of healthcare fraud. This program is known as the Nebraska Senior Health Insurance Information Program, or SHIIP. The Nebraska SHIIP program is funded through federal grants provided by the Administration on Community Living.
The Nebraska SHIIP does not sell any products or policies, does not conduct market research, and is not related to any insurance companies. SHIIP not only provides presentations at senior centers and other organizations, but also maintains a counseling program for Nebraskans who request one-on-one assistance. SHIIP counselors provide accurate, objective information; they help you understand your options, so that you can make a better-informed decision.
Private counseling sessions may be scheduled to discuss Medicare benefi ts, Medicare Advantage products, Medicare Supplement policies, Medicare Part D, or healthcare fraud - just to name a few. All SHIIP presentations and counseling sessions are free and unbiased. In addition, all counseling sessions are completely confi dential.
