AARP Oklahoma, July 23, 2010
AARP Oklahoma worked with the Oklahoma Senior Health Insurance Counseling Program (SHIP) to answer questions about the new health care law during a phone bank held July 1 on KJRH-TV in Tulsa.
Volunteers, including members of the AARP Oklahoma Executive Council and state staff, answered approximately 175 calls during the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.
Oklahoma State Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland was a special guest at the event. Commissioner Holland took time to help answer questions during the event.
According to the Oklahoma Insurance Department, SHIP is a non-profit organization helping to inform the public about Medicare and other senior health insurance issues. SHIP provides counseling on Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage, long-term care, and other related health coverage plans for Medicare beneficiaries, their representatives, or persons soon to be eligible for Medicare.
SHIP can be contacted toll free by calling 1-800-763-2828.
Additional information on the health care law can also be obtained from AARP online aarp.org/getthefacts or by calling the state office at 1-877-295-7277.
