About Medicare Counseling

Office of Healthy Aging: As Rhode Island’s designated state unit on aging, they empower older Rhode Islanders (age 55+) and adults living with disabilities to age strong. Along with many partners, they connect you to information and resources in the community to help you live happily and healthfully. They advocate for laws, policies and investments that protect your rights and agency.

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) helps people find the right Medicare coverage at the right cost. SHIP also assists beneficiaries with limited income to apply for programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare Savings Program and Extra Help/Low Income Subsidy, which can subsidize or reduce healthcare costs.
