SHIBA Advisor @ Lower Columbia CAP
Do you have questions about your Medicare health care options? Lower Columbia CAP’s trained SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors) volunteers can help you understand and compare your options! Through informational presentations and one-on-one counseling, SHIBA advisors serve residents of Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis, Skamania, and Wahkiakum counties who are enrolled or eligible to enroll in Medicare.
What is SHIBA? SHIBA is a program of the Consumer Protection Division within the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC). Lower Columbia CAP is the sponsor for SW Washington. The SHIBA program is a statewide network of trained volunteer advisors that offer free assistance to residents. Advisors help residents of all ages and backgrounds with questions about health insurance, health care access and prescription drug plans, and they can assist with problems or instances of fraud.
Volunteer Advisors are needed to help people navigate their health insurance options. The office trains volunteers to be benefit advisors working directly with clients to find better options to fit their budget and needs. Most work done is by phone in cubicle office area. Some advisors do outreach presenting to small groups, help table events, or help in the office doing clerical.
Minimum age is 21. Training is provided. Volunteers should have good hearing/communication/phone skills.
