If you need help with Medicare cost and think you may not qualify, SHIP, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program, and the Lowcountry Country Council of Governments may be able to help you.
A free and unbiased service, SHIP helps Medicare recipients with the understanding of their insurance needs and what Federal or State insurance benefits are available.
The program also help them understand Medicare fraud and ways to protect themselves.
The Lowcountry Council of Governments’ goal for 2022 is to help as many individuals apply for additional state and or federal benefits. If qualified, these benefits help reduce Medicare premiums and healthcare cost.
There are so many Seniors in our neighborhoods that do not know these benefits are an option.
If you need assistance, feel free to contact Dieesha Hicks, SHIP/ICARE Specialist with the Area Agency On Aging at 843-473-3996
