SHIIP Volunteers

Monroe County Hospital & Clinics (MCHC) is proud to offer SHIIP Volunteer services to our customers. SHIIP, the Senior Health Insurance Information Program, was created in 1990 in response to the statewide need for senior health insurance information. SHIIP provides free informational materials as well as one-to-one assistance with questions and problems related to Medicare benefits, Medicare supplement insurance, Medicare and insurance claims and other related issues.

For many Iowans on Medicare and their caretakers, Medicare plans can be confusing. Choosing the wrong plan can lead to your provider no longer being in-network, your prescriptions costing hundreds of dollars more or travel plans ruined due to gaps in your medical coverage.

SHIIP does not recommend insurance companies, plans or agents; the volunteers answer questions and provide impartial information to help Iowans on Medicare make well-informed decisions.

MCHC feels very fortunate to have dedicated SHIIP Volunteers to help individuals make informed decisions regarding Medicare plans. “I appreciate the efforts of our volunteers who go above and beyond, generously giving their time to help our community and surrounding community members,” said Jami Anderson, Revenue Cycle Manager, MCHC.
