Orange City Area Health System is now an official sponsor for the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), a service of the State of Iowa. SHIIP volunteers will be providing free-of-charge counseling and information to people with questions about Medicare, Medicare supplement insurance, long term care insurance, and claims filings. The Sioux County SHIIP office is currently seeking volunteers to serve as health insurance counselors. Once volunteers have been recruited and trained — hopefully by early summer 2011 — the Sioux County SHIIP office will be located on the main campus of Orange City Area Health System. For more information on this service or on becoming a volunteer contact SHIIP Iowa Insurance Division at 515-281-6867, or Char Ten Clay, Orange City Area Health System Director of Senior Care, at 712-737-4002.
