The Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) provides free, unbiased education and assistance with Medicare. We can help you understand when and how to enroll, how to choose between the different Medicare options, and how to read your Medicare statements. We offer regular classes at both Senior Centers and the public libraries in Chapel Hill and Hillsborough. Or, you may choose to meet one-on-one with a Certified SHIIP Counselor to discuss your specific needs.
Appointments with Certified Counselors are available at the Passmore Center and the Seymour Center. You can schedule your appointment online now, or call us at 919-245-4274.
We also offer a limited number of Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) counseling appointments for adults age 55 to 64. To Schedule an appointment for ACA/Obamacare assistance, please call us at 919-245-4240.
