Missouri State Health Insurance Assistance Program

Atchison County Health Department offers a Medicare assistance program to help people understand their eligibility and benefits and enroll in Medicare insurance. We partner with Missouri SHIP which is the official State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), to provide reliable Medicare and Medicaid information and assistance. Missouri SHIP offers certified volunteers who are trained to help people compare Medicare plans for their prescription drug coverage. We can answer questions about Medicare and Medicaid eligibility, benefits, and claims.


You can contact Missouri SHIP by calling 1-800 390-3330 or by clicking the MO SHIP button below.  We encourage everyone to review their Medicare plan information annually, especially during Open Enrollment October 15th – December 15th.
