If you need more information regarding the flu vaccines or need help with prescriptions, please contact Northwest Indian Community Action and request to speak with a SHIP Counselor.

A SHIP counselor can assist in explaining your Medicare benefits in addition to helping you apply for programs such as, Extra Help to assist with your prescription costs or the Medicare Savings Program to help pay your Part B premium.
