SHINE News: Are you happy with your 2021 Medicare health Insurance plan?


Now that you are a few weeks into 2021, let’s think about your 2021 Medicare health and prescription plans. Have you had some out-of-pocket expenses you did not anticipate? Were your copayments more than you thought they should be? Are you struggling with premium expenses? Do you just need someone to explain what you have for coverage?

SHINE counselors can help explain your policies so you have a better understanding of what your financial obligations are. We can also look to see if you qualify for any assistance programs to help alleviate some of the out-of-pocket expenses.

We are here to help. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions regarding your Medicare coverage.

You can make an appointment with a SHINE counselor at your local senior center, or call the Regional SHINE Office, Barnstable County Dept. of Human Services, at 508-375-6762.
