Center for Medicare Advocacy Presents at National SHIP and SMP Conference about Medicare for Beneficiaries Under 65

The Center for Medicare Advocacy was pleased to attend, exhibit and present at this year’s national SHIP and SMP conference. Pursuant to a Target Population Grant from the Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Center is working to enhance outreach and education for younger Medicare beneficiaries.  At the conference, we discussed progress and next-steps in our seventeen-month project to provide State Health Insurance Programs (SHIPs) and Senior Medicare Patrols (SMPs) strategies and information to more broadly serve Medicare beneficiaries who are under age 65. The Center presented on a panel with representatives from three other Target Population Grantees: The National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA); The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA); and, Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE).
