Summary
"Through grants, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) helps states provide information, counseling, and assistance to Medicare beneficiaries and their families on Medicare and other health insurance issues. The SHIP program was created by section 4360 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1990, and grants are administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). As new waves of beneficiaries become eligible for Medicare and changes occur in the Medicare program, demand for accurate and unbiased information and assistance to help beneficiaries make informed choices about their health care coverage is likely to increase."
