Medicare Help

Medicare can be a confusing subject. That’s why we at the Mid-Columbia Senior Center sponsor a branch of SHIBA (Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance).

SHIBA counselors are Oregon’s free, non-biased Medicare advisory volunteers. They are not associated with any particular type of insurance and do not give recommendations—just information. If you have any questions about your Medicare, you can get in contact with our local SHIBA counselors and talk either over the phone, via email, or in person.

Our SHIBA counselors at the MCSC serve Hood River, Gilliam, Sherman, Wasco, and Wheeler Counties.
