Free Medicare open enrollment counseling (SHINE program)
Senior Friendship Center
2350 Scenic Dr.
The Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida's SHINE program provides free, unbiased information and assistance for seniors looking to evaluate their Medicare and prescription plans during Medicare Open Enrollment. No appointment is necessary for a drop-in session with a volunteer SHINE counselor. If you are interested in getting help comparing your plans, please bring information about your health and prescription drug coverage. SHINE volunteers will need a list of medications taken (including dosages), a list of the providers you want (doctors/pharmacies), and any notices you've received from your existing plan, Social Security, or Medicare. Medicare Open Enrollment ends on December 7. For more information about the Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida, visit www.aaaswfl.org or call the Elder Helpline toll-free at 866-413-5337.
