Every state has a SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program). In Virginia, our program is Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program, or VICAP. VICAP serves older Virginia residents through its local offices. Its mission is to provide education, counseling, and other one-on-one assistance regarding Medicare, Medicaid, managed Care, EPIC (Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage), and other health insurance issues and questions.
