The Louisiana Senior Health Insurance Information Program is part of a national network of programs that offer free, confidential counseling and assistance for people with Medicare. Congress established State Health Information Programs in 1990 to help beneficiaries navigate an increasingly complex health care system.

Each year, Louisiana SHIIP provides invaluable services to people with Medicare, including:

  • Counseling beneficiaries through the annual prescription drug plan enrollment period.
  • Educating the community about health insurance issues.
  • Connecting with beneficiaries who have limited incomes to help them save money on health care costs.

Your talents and skills are needed!
