State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)

1001 17th St.

Denver,

CO 80202

303-480-6835

Description

SHIP provides Medicare beneficiaries with unbiased information, counseling, and enrollment assistance.  SHIP counselors can speak to individuals and groups about Medicare benefits, coverage rules, written notices, forms, appeal rights, procedures, and more.  Counselors assist people in obtaining coverage through options that include the original Medicare program (Parts A & B), Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans, and Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) plans.  They can help people understand Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) insurance policies and explain how these and other insurance options work with Medicare.

Senior Medicare Patrol in Denver, CO

The Senior Medicare Patrol program helps prevent Medicare fraud by giving beneficiaries a way to protect, detect, and report suspected abuse of the program.  If you receive bills for services you did not receive, see claims on your quarterly Medicare Summary Notice for visits you didn’t make, or if you receive phone calls or visits from people offering to get you things free of charge, call 303-480-6835 and our staff will assist you.
