SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors)

SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors) is a state funded program administered by Island Senior Resources. Trained volunteers are available to provide you with objective information about insurance options that may be right for your circumstances. They help you understand what choices you have so you can act on your own behalf.

Our team offers unbiased and confidential advising for Medicare benefits and insurance options to people of all ages and backgrounds. The program is sponsored locally by Island Senior Resources. SHIBA volunteers cannot make choices for you, nor can they make house calls.

To schedule a SHIBA appointment or if you have any questions about SHIBA, call the Senior Resource Center at 360-321-1600 Ext. 0.

If you, or someone you care for, needs additional insurance help beyond what SHIBA volunteers are able to provide, you can contact any of our Information & Assistance specialists at Island Senior Resources.  They’re always glad to help where they can.
