An informational program on “Medicare Changes for 2019: What You Need to Know” presented by Elyse Drucker, Union County SHIP Coordinator,  will take place on Tuesday, November 13, 2018,  10:30 AM at the Elizabeth Public Library, 11 South Broad Street, Elizabeth.  The presentation is part of a series from the Lifelong Elizabeth Program sponsored by Jewish Family Service of Central NJ through funding from the Grotta Fund for Senior Care. 

SHIP stands for State Health Insurance Assistance Program.  It is a statewide program, provided throughout Union County by Sage Eldercare.  The goal of the program is to provide, free, objective, confidential help for Medicare beneficiaries who need assistance with or have questions about their health insurance.  Volunteer Counselors provide help to people dealing with claims and/or evaluating health insurance needs.  SHIP is sponsored by the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services Division on Aging and Community Services with funding from the US Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Lifelong Elizabeth is a community led, city endorsed initiative that aims to make our city an age-friendly community that is a great place to grow up and grow old.  The City of Elizabeth was recently welcomed into the Age-Friendly community by AARP in a ceremony, making Elizabeth the 7th city in New Jersey and 301st in the country to receive such a designation.
