FREE Medicare Supplement Assistance Countywide

Want to save money on your Medicare Supplement or
related costs? Open enrollment for health insurance and Medicare supplement is Oct. 15 - Dec. 7. SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors) volunteers Daniel and Joyce Leonard are coming to all Whitman County communities to help meet the individual needs of
current and future Medicare recipients.


 

To receive the best assistance, please bring a list of current medications. Drop-in anytime during the scheduled hours for assistance. SHIBA offers free, unbiased, confidential help in making this important decision. Supplement policies need an annual review as they change in cost and coverage every year. SHIBA is a free service of the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner and sponsored locally by Aging and Long Term Care of Eastern Washington.
