A broad network of community partners provides Medicare counseling for Wisconsin residents. Working together, we ensure Medicare beneficiaries can make confident, well-informed health insurance decisions, and get help when they need it.

Two federal grants fund this work:

  • The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) grant supports local agencies in providing outreach, counseling, and enrollment assistance to Medicare beneficiaries and their families.
  • The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) grant supports local efforts to increase awareness about low-income subsidies (LIS), Medicare Savings Programs (MSP), Medicare Part D in rural areas, SeniorCare Level 1, and Medicare's preventive benefits.

Look through the links below to find what you need or contact us to help with questions like:

  • Where can I find newsletter articles about Medicare’s preventive benefits?
  • What materials can I use to promote LIS or MSPs in my county?
  • Do you have any materials in other languages?
