Medicare Questions? SHIIP can help.

SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program) is a program through the State of Iowa – staffed by trained volunteers – that provides free informational materials as well as one-to-one assistance with:

  • Medicare coverage
  • Medicare supplement insurance
  • Medicare Part D assistance and enrollment (prescription insurance)
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Medicare and insurance claims
  • Other related issues

SHIIP does not endorse insurance companies, plans or agents; the volunteers answer questions and provide impartial information to help seniors make well-informed decisions. SHIIP is available to help if you:

  • Are going on Medicare
  • Are over age 65, on Medicare, and have questions
  • Are on disability with Medicare and Medicaid

SHIIP volunteers are available by appointment at Winneshiek Medical Center in Decorah by calling 563-387-3036.
