The Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) counsels Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about Medicare, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D, and long-term care insurance.

The SHIIP counselors offer free and unbiased information regarding Medicare health care products. We also help people recognize and prevent Medicare billing errors and possible fraud and abuse through the NC Senior Medicare Patrol Program.

SHIIP counselors are not licensed insurance agents, and they do not sell or endorse any product, plan, or company.  If you have questions about your specific plan, we encourage you to contact your insurance agent or the insurance company.

SHIIP has counselors in every county across the state who are trained to be the go-to people for seniors and Medicare beneficiaries in their local communities.  Local counseling is done by appointment in each county. 

Iredell Council on Aging serves as the SHIIP agency for Iredell County.
