CLAIM answers questions about Medicare for Missourians.
CLAIM stands for "Community Leaders Assisting the Insured of Missouri." We have been the official State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for Missouri since 1993. We are a nonprofit organization and all of our services are free, unbiased and confidential. We are not an insurance agency. We do not sell anything and our counselors do not ask Missourians for money.
CLAIM has more than 300 volunteer counselors throughout Missouri providing local Medicare counseling in their communities and we are looking for volunteers in your community. Volunteers receive extensive training by participating in a four-day comprehensive Medicare training course, as well as by receiving an additional 12 hours of continuing education trainings annually.
Volunteers help Missourians work through and understand Medicare options, benefits and/or changes. CLAIM counselors can assist with:
- Medicare eligibility, enrollment and claims forms
- Employment and retirement health benefit questions
- Supplemental insurance policies
- Medicare Advantage options, such as HMO's and PPO's
- Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage
- Long-term care planning
- Public benefit programs
- Fraud and abuse

CLAIM is funded by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) grant through the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration and services are provided by Primaris Foundation, a non-profit founded by Primaris.
