A: The local SHIP counselors will be providing a limited number of one-on-one counseling sessions to help you identify your drug plan options from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. For Yellowstone County call the Alliance Resource Center at 406-259-5212 to reach a SHIP counselor to begin the process to evaluate your options. Due to the pandemic our counseling session will be more limited than in years past. We recommend you call today to be included in our first release of the Rx Worksheet.
Call 1-800-551-3191 to reach a SHIP counselor in other areas. 1-800 MEDICARE is also available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week for phone counseling after Oct. 15. All counselors are going to need personal information including your Medicare number and a list of your medications including dosages and quantity.
On Thurs., Oct 8 at 1 p.m., the Resource Center Staff will present a virtual presentation “Changes to Medicare D and Medicare Advantages plan for 2021.” Live on our Facebook page. In addition, you will be able to view a taped recording of the event on our website posted shortly thereafter.
Do you have a question about Medicare or Medicaid that you would like answered? Please send your question to SHIP Program c/o Adult Resource Alliance of Yellowstone County, PO Box 20895, Billings, MT 59104 or email@example.com
