Medicare Support

Medicare is the nation’s health insurance program for seniors. The program offers some basic options, with folks having healthcare bills paid for in various ways. Our Medicare Support Program (also known as SHIBA) provides info folks need so they aren’t confused when they enroll, and get the best plan at the best cost. Our trained volunteers provide free, private, one-on-one help.


We can:

  • Review current and new Medicare plans with you,
  • Help you learn about benefit changes,
  • Find and go over drug plans with you,
  • Search for cost savings,
  • Assist you so you can make an informed choice each year.

After we discuss different plans with you, you make your own choice and enroll in the plan that best meets your needs.
