APPRISE Volunteer

APPRISE is the name of the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for Pennsylvania’s Medicare beneficiaries. The Pennsylvania Department of Aging created APPRISE to help Pennsylvanians with Medicare understand their health insurance options and help them make sound decisions about what is best for them.
