State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Morris County SHIP sites are closed to the public. SHIP Counseling is currently being done over the phone. Please call 973-784-4900 ext. 3501 and leave a message. A SHIP counselor will return your call. 

Are you enrolled in Medicare and need help with your insurance? State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselors can help!

This program uses volunteer counselors to provide free help to adults enrolled in Medicare who have problems with or questions about their health insurance. In Morris County, the program is provided by the non-profit organization NORWESCAP.

Please call for an appointment. Many sites can not accommodate walk-ins.
