A Shift from “APPRISE” to “PA MEDI”

Effective July 1, 2021, the Pennsylvania State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) currently named APPRISE, will be renamed Pennsylvania Medicare Education and Decision Insight, PA MEDI; same program, same services for Pennsylvania’s Medicare beneficiaries, now with a new name. The new branding is designed as a unique opportunity for PA’s SHIP to grow, innovate, connect with beneficiaries and organizations, tap into new populations and to be relevant to beneficiaries’ needs.
