Medicare... Know the answers? SHIIP volunteers at Veterans Memorial Hospital do

Are mammograms covered by Medicare Part B?

What coverage can I get with Medicare supplement insurance?

Do long-term care policies cover people with Alzheimer’s disease?

Does every Medicare beneficiary have to make a decision about Medicare Part D?

Answers to these questions can be found by meeting with the Senior Health Insurance  Information Program (SHIIP) volunteers, Russ Hagen and Stan and Mary Straate, at Veterans Memorial Hospital.

Volunteer Hagen is available many Monday afternoons and Stan and Mary Straate Thursday afternoons at Veterans Memorial Hospital, to meet individually with anyone having Medicare questions or concerns. Appointments are required. To make an appointment, call Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411.

SHIIP, the Senior Health Insurance Information Program, was created in 1990 in response to the statewide need for senior health insurance information. SHIIP provides free informational materials as well as one-to-one assistance with Medicare Coverage, Medicare supplement insurance, long-term care insurance, Medicare and insurance claims and other related issues.

SHIIP does not recommend insurance companies, plans or agents; the volunteers answer questions and provide impartial information to help seniors make well-informed decisions.
For more information about the SHIIP program, or to schedule an appointment to meet with a SHIIP volunteer, call Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411.
