S.H.I.P. Program (State Health Insurance Assistance Program)

SHIP LogoIf you are a Medicare Beneficiary and

  • Medicare forms confuse you,
  • Health Insurance options overwhelm you,
  • You need assistance with health insurance claims, or
  • Have concerns about prescription costs.

If so, then you need to speak to a qualified trained counselor who is with the S.H.I.P. Program. SHIP is a statewide program sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Aging and Community Services, with major funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

SHIP provides FREE, objective, and confidential help to New Jersey Medicare beneficiaries who have problems with, or questions about Medicare, Medigap, Medicare + Choice Plans.

Experienced counselors do not provide legal advice, sell, recommend or endorse any specific insurance product, agent or insurance company. Counselors provide information and assistance so the YOU can make your own decisions.

If you need assistance in any of these areas, please call the Hunterdon County Division of Senior, Disabilities and Veterans' Services at 908-788-1361 and make an appointment to speak with a counselor.
