We are funded through two programs: State Health Insurance Assistance Programs (SHIP) and Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP).
SHIP funds personalized counseling, education and outreach to Medicare beneficiaries and their families. This allows people to better understand and utilize their Medicare benefits. SHIP is a program of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) cms.gov.
SMP funds education for Medicare beneficiaries and others on how to spot and report potential Medicare errors, fraud, waste and abuse. SMP is a program of the Administration for Community Living (ACL).
