SHIP assistance for Medicare recipients


Every year thousands of people age onto Medicare or go onto Medicare through Social Security Disability. Many of them have no idea who to contact for help with their Medicare questions. We don’t want you to be one of those people.

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP/SMP) provides information and counseling on Medicare issues. Since we do not sell insurance or any other products, we can provide unbiased assistance with comparisons for Prescription Drug Plans, Medicare Advantage, supplement plans etc....

While the South Central Tennessee Development District office is currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 health care crisis, we continue to assist beneficiaries by phone, email or fax.

If you are new to Medicare, have questions about Medicare or need general Medicare information, call 1-877-801-0044, the Local SHIP/SMP office 931-379-2927 or email [email protected] The SHIP/SMP Program can also screen you to see if you qualify for "extra help" with your Medicare costs.
