The SHINE Program

The SHINE Program (Serving the Health Information Needs of Elders) is a state wide program that provides free health care information, assistance, and counseling to Medicare beneficiaries of all ages and their caregivers.

More About the Program

SHINE Counselors help Medicare beneficiaries of all ages to compare costs and benefits of various health plans. SHINE Counselors also help file Medicare appeals or grievances and can provide information and assistance in applying for help to pay for medical expenses for people with limited income and resources.

At GBCGAC, bilingual and bicultural SHINE counselors provide health insurance information and assistance to Chinese-speaking elders and their familes.
