Get Help with Medicare at Events this Summer

insurance commissionerThe Office of the Insurance Commissioner has a program that helps Washingtonians sign up for Medicare and other health care programs. It’s called Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors (SHIBA) and it offers free, unbiased and confidential assistance with Medicare and other health care choices.
SHIBA can help you:

  • Understand your health care coverage options and rights.
  • Determine your general eligibility for health care coverage programs.
  • Evaluate and compare health insurance plans.
SHIBA holds events around the state to help people who are just getting signed up for Medicare–called birthday events–and information sessions for people who are new to Medicare or simply have questions about it.

Upcoming events:
