Senior Health Insurance
Benefits Assistance (SHIBA)
Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) is a statewide
network of trained volunteers who educate, assist and advocate
for seniors about their rights and options regarding health insurance,
so they can make informed choices.
The free program is sponsored by the Oregon Insurance Division.
SHIBA volunteers are trained and kept up to date by experts
in the Oregon Insurance Division. They are able to answer questions
about Medicare, Medicare Supplement insurance, managed care,
Long-term Care insurance, employment-related benefits, medical
billings assistance, retirement health plans, pre-retirement
decisions, and other consumer protection issues.
Over 200 volunteers are active in more than 30 Oregon counties.
