Pennsylvania Medicare Education and Decision Insight, PA MEDI 

PA MEDI is the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for all Medicare beneficiaries in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Department of Aging created PA MEDI to help Pennsylvanians understand their Medicare and other related health insurance benefits and assist them in making sound decisions about what is best for them.PAMedi Centered (PMS281)

PA MEDI counselors are specially trained staff and volunteers who can answer your questions about Medicare and provide you with objective, easy-to-understand information about Medicare, Medicare Supplemental Insurance, Medicare Advantage Plans, Prescription Plans, and Medicaid.

Through individualized counseling, we can:

  • Help you understand your Medicare benefits by explaining which services are covered under Parts A & B and your Medicare Summary Notice.
  • Help you make informed choices about Medicare coverage options, including Medicare Advantage Plans, Medigap Plans, and Prescription Plans.
  • Help you understand the Medicare appeals process and assist with appeals paperwork.
  • Explain financial assistance programs that may be available to assist in paying for your Medicare premiums, deductibles and coinsurance, as well as your prescription drug needs.
  • Provide presentations on Medicare to your organization.
