Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP)

Home Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP)

Orland Township’s FREE Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) provides assistance to seniors in need of help with Medicare claims and statements, as well as help with Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Coverage.

Counselors, trained and certified with the Illinois Department of Insurance, are available by appointment to answer questions about Medicare and Medicare Supplemental Insurance.

Additionally, once a year, Orland Township holds a free, “Everything You Need to Know about Medicare” seminar. This two-hour seminar takes an overall look at Medicare, Medicare Part D, Medicare Part A and B benefits, prescription benefits, supplemental insurance policies, home healthcare, managed care and much more to help inform seniors before their annual Medicare enrollment / renewal.

Counselors provide accurate and objective one-on-one counseling sessions. They are not affiliated with any insurance company and they do not sell or solicit any type of insurance. Call the Township to schedule an appointment (708) 403-4222.
