Medicare Open Enrollment starts Oct 15! Picking the right Medicare plan is individualized and we can make sure you pick a plan that meets your health needs. 

We’re trained and offer free, unbiased assistance with Medicare issues.

Trained SHIBA volunteers can help Medicare beneficiaries:

  • Find out if they’re eligible for benefits they are not receiving​
  • Compare insurance policies​
  • Ensure they don’t pay too much out of pocket,​
  • File claims​
  • Make appeals and complaints when necessary ​
  • Make referrals to federal, state and county offices​
  • Identify potential insurance violations. 

SHIBA offers one-on-one Medicare counseling, either at community-based sites or in homes. For more information please call the Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) Helpline at 503.988.3646 or email
