Welcome to Medicare Video

If you are unable to attend an in-person workshop, you may view a video made available by Nebraska SHIP.

Welcome to Medicare

Everyone’s Medicare situation is unique, and Medicare’s enrollment periods can be complicated.  This video is intended to provide you with basic Medicare information, and discuss situations that may impact how you insure yourself. However it is not comprehensive, and we suggest that you contact VAS and speak with a counselor before making any Medicare decisions.
