We are in need of volunteer SHIP counselors who are bilingual, or people who can help by working with a counselor and translating information for a client.

SHIP is the State Health Insurance Assistance Program, a statewide program administered by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Senior Affairs, with major funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. SAGE Eldercare is the sponsoring organization for the program in Union County.

Volunteer counselors, trained by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and/or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will provide information and assistance for dealing with claims and evaluating health insurance needs. SHIP counselors can also discuss options such as whether to remain in a traditional Medicare plan or choose a Medicare Choice plan. Volunteer counselors do not provide legal advice, sell, recommend or endorse any specific insurance product, agent, insurance company or HMO. They provide information and assistance so that clients can make their own decisions.
