The Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) program is available to help answer your questions about Medicare. Local SHIBA counselors are available to meet with you one-on-one throughout Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties. SHIBA also hosts monthly seminars at various locations. Check the Calendar for dates, times, and instructions for registering for these free classes. SHIBA is part of the Insurance Division in the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS). SHIBA is sponsored locally by the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and by the Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments.
