SHIBA is Idaho’s free, unbiased resource that empowers Idahoans to make informed decisions about their Medicare coverage.
The SHIBA program is part of a nationwide network of certified Medicare counselors who provide seniors and disabled citizens with free and unbiased information, and assistance with Medicare. We do not sell insurance, recommend policies, agents, or specific companies. Instead, we provide clarity to people who are often desperate to understand the complex Medicare system and the many choices available to them.
We train and certify Medicare counselors in every county in Idaho. Our volunteers are often become their community’s go-to Medicare expert and many say this is one of the most rewarding jobs they’ve ever had.
