Free help with your Medicare Plans

Free help with your Medicare palns

Want to save money on your Medicare Supplement or related costs? Open enrollment for health insurance and Medicare supplement is October 15 through December 7 and 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, participants should bring a list of current medications. Drop in anytime during the scheduled hours for assistance.

Whitman County Library is partnering again this year with SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors) to offer 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, unbiased service of the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner and sponsored locally by Aging and Long Term Care of Eastern Washington. Dan and Joyce Leonard were awarded the Washington AARP Andrus Award, the highest award for volunteer service in the state earlier this year.
