Funding for SHINE (SHIP), the program that provides free, unbiased, one-on-one Medicare coverage and benefits counseling has come under threat.
Each day 10,000 Americans are becoming Medicare eligible and SHINE services will be needed more than ever. In 2015, SHINE Counselors saved clients in the sixteen county area served by Elder Options a total of $5.8 million dollars, just through MIPPA applications!
SHINE Counseling brings peace of mind for elders trying to make their way through the Medicare maze and the savings make it possible to pay for essentials like groceries, rent, and transportation. Act Now!
