Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone
The SHINE Program provides free health insurance information and counseling to all Massachusetts residents with Medicare and their caregivers. People who have Medicare or who are about to become eligible for Medicare can meet with a counselor to learn about benefits and options available. A counselor will review programs that help people with limited income to pay health care costs.
For information or to schedule an appointment with a SHINE Counselor, call 978-946-1374 and leave your name, phone number and town. A counselor will call you back the next business day.
The Medicare re-enrollment period (Oct 15-Dec 7) is a time to make decisions that will impact your medical choices and financial impact of those choices in the coming year. In addition to SHINE services, the Medicare.gov Website is always available and provides information about insurance plans available. For those who prefer to speak with a representative, 1-800-MEDICARE is available 24/7.
