The SHIP volunteer advisors can assist anyone with questions or concerns relating to Medicare and/or Medicare products.  SHIP services are designed to help explain Medicare, health insurance, health service plans, and other options for financing health and long-term care services in an objective and unbiased manner that supports your independent decisions.

The counseling services are provided by SHIP-trained Volunteer Advisors who are acting in good faith to provide information about Medicare health insurance policies and benefits to you.

The SHIP program is funded by the Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services through the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division.

There is no fee for this service.
