Representatives from the Mississippi State Health Insurance Assistance Program (MS SHIP) and Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) in the Division of Aging & Adult Services, Candace L. Washington, director, and John Robinson, volunteer coordinator, recently visited with Applied Gerontology faculty, staff and students to provide program updates and begin discussion on future partnerships.

MS SHIP is a counseling program designed to answer the elderly’s questions about health insurance. MIPPA has helped roughly one million low-income Medicare beneficiaries access programs that make their health care and prescriptions affordable.
