New to Medicare?

Enrolling In Medicare Through Social Security

This fact sheet helps you understand how to enroll in Medicare through the Social Security Administration and how your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) can help. 


Welcome to Medicare Archived Training

Watch short recordings on what you need to know when you are new to Medicare. In June 2021, expert trainers from the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) national network present on Medicare eligibility, enrollment, costs, and coverage options. National experts from Social Security, Medicare, the Senior Medicare Patrol, and the National Council on Aging also presented on the federal government's role in Medicare, avoiding Medicare fraud, and Medicare cost assistance programs. Information from this event that is still relevant has been retained on our YouTube channel.
