LifeStream Services is providing free Medicare consultations with trained State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselors during Medicare Open Enrollment.
The State Health Insurance Assistance Program provides free, impartial health insurance information for people with Medicare. SHIP can help answer questions regarding Medicare, Medicare Supplement Insurance, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, long-term care insurance, prescription coverage, and low-income assistance.
One-on-one appointments can be scheduled through December 7 by calling LifeStream at 800-589-1121. Those who are unable to travel, or prefer not to, can speak with a SHIP counselor on the phone who can assess their current coverage and make other recommendations.
Those who live in the Farmland area are invited to schedule an appointment on November 15 at the Farmland Community Center from 10am to 4pm. Reservations must be made in advance by calling LifeStream.
