Nebraska Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP)
Since Medicare, Medicaid and other types of health insurance can be confusing; the State of Nebraska has developed a program to educate older Nebraskans and people with disabilities about their health insurance. This program is known as the Nebraska Senior Health Insurance Information Program, or SHIIP.
SHIIP not only provides presentations at senior centers and other organizations, but also maintains a counseling program for Nebraskans who request one-on-one assistance.
SHIIP counselors provide accurate, objective information; they help you understand your options, so that you can make a better-informed decision.
