Open Enrollment

The SHIBA program provides free, unbiased advice and assistance about the Medicare program.  We help Medicare beneficiaries understand Medicare enrollment and plan options, and pick the plans that give them the best coverage for their personal needs.  SHIBA is a program of the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner.

Medicare’s fall open enrollment period is October 15th through December 7th.  This is the time you can add or change Medicare coverage.  As in the past, SHIBA will provide appointments for Camano Island residents, but this year due to COVID-10 restrictions, we will do this by telephone or Zoom video conference.  This means you can get help without leaving your home.  If you have internet service and a computer or tablet device, you can schedule an appointment for a Zoom video conference, AND you can choose any date we offer for Open Enrollment events.

Did you know that you can spend hundreds or thousands of dollars per year more for your prescription medications if you choose the wrong plan?  We can help you find a plan that covers YOUR medications at the lowest cost.

To schedule an Open Enrollment Appointment, call 425-290-1276 or send an email to   If you are new to Medicare or need to expand Medicare coverage after the end of job-related health insurance, you can use the same phone or email to request a regular SHIBA appointment or information about our Welcome to Medicare Classes.
