If you need assistance understanding your options, we have trained volunteers in your community. Our Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors (SHIBA) program offers free help to people with Medicare questions and can help you search for plans online. There are even free Medicare workshops across the state.

Remember, if you want to enroll in  a new plan, you must contact Medicare. You cannot sign up through the state’s new health benefit exchange.

If you have limited income and need help paying prescription drugs, check out Medicare’s “Extra Help” program. To see if you qualify, contact the Social Security Administration online or at 1-800-772-1213.
