Our Goals

Are you receiving all the local, state, or federal benefits you are entitled to receive? The national Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) mission is to empower, educate, and assist Medicare-eligible individuals, their families, and caregivers, through objective outreach and counseling to make informed health insurance decisions that optimize access to care and benefits.

Our trained staff is available to assist you in understanding benefits which often times can be very confusing and overwhelming. LMSC is a place where our clients, members, and their caregivers can feel comfortable in knowing that they will receive unbiased person-centered counseling.
