Seniors on Medicare are undoubtedly interested in an excellent way to get additional information about affordable health insurance in Ohio. The program is called OSHIIP (Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program), and it is designed to offer resources and services to Ohio seniors on Medicare.
OSHIIP, which was founded in 1992, is administered by the Ohio Department of Insurance and funded by both a federal grant and Ohio. Trained volunteers help people interested in or already receiving Medicare to better understand their Ohio health insurance not only by handing out publications and working information sites, but also by counseling Ohio residents about their options for affordable health insurance in Ohio. In the past 14 years, Ohio residents have saved over three million dollars on health insurance costs thanks to OSHIIP.
OSHIIP provides information about Medicare coverage for seniors, as well as those under the age of 65 with disabilities; health plans with Medicare, such as HMOs; supplemental insurance with Medicare; savings programs to use with Medicare; long-term care insurance and health care insurance when you’re being taken care of at home; and health insurance for retirees.
This informational program about affordable health insurance in Ohio is also a member of several organizations, as well as being similar to a network of nationwide state-sponsored health insurance programs.
