Medicare Open Enrollment Information

Happy August everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well.  Medicare's Open Enrollment season is fast approaching, so if you would like a speaker to present to your organization, either via Zoom or in person, please reach out to me soon, as we fill dates very quickly this time of year.

As always, if you have questions about Medicare or the program in general, our trained Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors (SHIBA) are here to help.  Call to get free, unbiased help from one of our trained volunteers through the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner at 1-800-562- 6900 or through Senior Services for South Sound at 360.586.6181, ext. 134 or email to get in touch with one of our trained volunteers.
