Since Medicare and other types of health insurance can be confusing, the State of Nebraska has developed a program to educate older Nebraskans and people with disabilities about their health insurance. This program is known as the Nebraska Senior Health Insurance Information Program, or SHIIP.

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 benefits, Medicare Advantage products, Medicare Supplement policies, Medicare Part D, or Long-Term Care Insurance - just to name a few. All SHIIP presentations and counseling sessions are free and unbiased. In addition, all counseling sessions are completely confidential.
