SHIIP is not affiliated with any insurance company or agency, and does not sell insurance. SHIIP is staffed by a crew of volunteer counselors who have completed an intensive 4-day training course and are certified by the Indiana State Department of Insurance. Regular training updates keep them current with the most recent changes in Medicare and other health care insurance options. SHIIP counselors are committed volunteers who offer you free and objective assistance in complete confidence.
