SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefit Advisors) Volunteers

Statewide Health Insurance Benefit Advisors (SHIBA) volunteers help consumers make informed decisions about health insurance, including Medicare. SHIBA volunteers are trained to educate, assist and advocate for consumers about their rights and options. Volunteers receive training, guidance and ongoing support through the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner and the local SHIBA sponsor organization. No experience is necessary.
