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 from 8-5 by appointment. MRHC will also host a free “Welcome to Medicare” seminar on November 28th at 7pm. Register by November 24th by calling (712) 655-2072.
SHIIP is a free, confidential service of the State of Iowa. Danner can 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.
To schedule an appointment with Danner, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call MRHC at 712-655-2072. If a client is only wishing to talk on the phone, they may leave their phone number and Danner will return their call.
