Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP)
The Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP), founded in 1992, is a state and federally funded program that educates, counsels, and advocates for Medicare beneficiaries. OSHIIP assists Ohio Medicare beneficiaries and their family members through a toll-free hotline at 1-800-686-1578, the Department web site, a speakers’ bureau, educational publications, and a network of approximately 1,200 statewide trained and certified volunteers. The program is managed by the Ohio Department of Insurance.
AAA7 has several staff trained as OSHIIP volunteers and they can be reached at 800-582-7277. AAA7 staff regularly partner with OSHIIP staff during special Medicare outreach events such as Medicare Check-Up Days and “Medicare & You” events.
