SHINE: Florida SHIP & SMPMedicare 101 is a well-rounded FREE presentation covering the basics of Medicare for those soon to be eligible as well as those currently on Medicare. Participants will learn the basics of Medicare Parts A, B, C and D, discover more about the many plan options available.

The presentation will be given by a professionally trained counselor of the SHINE/SMP (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders/Senior Medicare Patrol) program. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs’ SHINE program provides free, unbiased information and assistance for Florida Medicare beneficiaries year-round as they carefully evaluate their health care options.

SHINE empowers seniors, their caregivers, and family members to make informed decisions about health care coverage. SHINE counselors can also help beneficiaries understand benefits available through Medicare, like preventative health care services. Additionally, SHINE counselors assist low-income Medicare beneficiaries with applying for cost-savings programs. As part of the national SMP program, counselors also educate beneficiaries to protect, detect, and report potential errors, fraud, and abuse with their Medicare coverage.

For more information about the Medicare 101 presentation, or to receive one-on-one Medicare counseling assistance from SHINE, Call the Elder Helpline at 866-413-5337 (866-41-ELDER).
