Senior Health Insurance Information Services 

Answers to common Medicare questions can be found by meeting with Nancy Danner, MRHC’s Senior Health Insurance Information (SHIIP) counselor. Danner is at MRHC to meet with individuals every Wednesday by appointment.

SHIIP is a free, confidential service of the State of Iowa. Danner will provide information to aid in Medicare decision-making and answer questions related to Medicare itself, benefits, Medicare supplement insurance, Advantage plans, Medicare Part D plans, Medicare insurance claims, and how to guard against becoming a victim of Medicare fraud. She will not provide recommendations for plans or agents but will be able to answer questions and provide impartial information to help residents make informed decisions and assist people who have a limited income.

Danner recommends getting Medicare information at least 6-12 months before turning  65 years old.

Danner worked as a registered nurse for 27 years in the Carroll County area, a Certified Physician Assistant for 16 years in Manning, and a Certified Medical Coder at MRHC the last four years prior to retiring in August and transitioning to this volunteer position.

To schedule an appointment with Danner, please email or call MRHC at 712-655-8100. If a client is only wishing to talk on the phone, they may leave their phone number and Danner will return their call.
