SHIIP Services Now Available at MCHCS

Here at Madison County Health Care System (MCHCS), we are now an official sponsor of the Senior Health Insurance Information and Senior Medicare Patrol (SHIIP-SMP) programs, a service of the State of Iowa.  SHIIP-SMP volunteers provide local, in-depth, and unbiased one-to-one insurance counseling and assistance at no cost to Madison County Medicare-eligible individuals, their families, and caregivers. SHIIP-SMP also provides community outreach on Medicare and how to guard against Medicare fraud.

SHIIP-SMP helps consumers navigate the complexities of Medicare and saves them money by:

• Explaining Medicare benefits and rights
• Comparing Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage, and other drug plans
• Understanding Medicare enrollment periods and preventative benefits
• Finding assistance programs that help with Medicare costs and Medicare drug plans
• Learning how to protect themselves and their loved ones from Medicare scams

We are fortunate to have a knowledgeable, trained SHIIP-SMP volunteer, Steve Simmons, as part our team. We encourage Madison County consumers to connect with SHIIP-SMP services by calling (515) 462-5370 and making an appointment.
