Turning 65 and need help with Medicare information? Good Shepherd Health Care System can help!
The Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) program is a statewide network of trained counselors who volunteer their time to educate and advocate for people of all ages who have Medicare.
In Good Shepherd Health Care System’s Community Health & Outreach department, there are multiple certified Medicare counselors working with the Oregon Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) program. We see SHIBA clients on a daily basis either in-person, virtually, or via phone year-round. Medicare open enrollment for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug plans is Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. Don’t miss your opportunity to shop, compare and make enrollment decisions. Even if you continue to work or are not receiving Social Security, you need to know about Medicare to avoid penalties in your Medicare coverage. To schedule an appointment or speak with one of our SHIBA counselors, please call 541-667-3509.
