October means Open Enrollment
The SHINE (Serving the Health Information Needs of Everyone) Program provides health insurance information, assistance, and counseling to Medicare beneficiaries of all ages and others who have questions about insurance and public benefit programs.
SHINE Program staff and a network of certified volunteer counselors provide information about Medicare, Medigap, MassHealth, prescription drug programs, and other health assistance programs. Medicare plans change every year. Review your options…SHINE Can Help!
Counseling and assistance is provided free of charge. Contact at HESSCO at (781) 784-4944 to be connected with a counselor.
To keep them abreast of the latest information, volunteer SHINE counselors receive ongoing training and supervision from HESSCO’s SHINE Program Director.
