The Health Assistance Partnership (HAP) was a project of Families USA that worked with State Health Insurance Assistance Programs (SHIPs) to build their capacity to educate, counsel, and assist Medicare beneficiaries so they can make informed health care decisions.

Although it is no longer operational, many of HAP's materials still have relevance in today's health care environment. Please feel free to utilize the materials linked herein, with the understanding that the information was last updated or modified in 2010.
