The SHINE (Serving the Health Information Needs of Everyone) Program provides health insurance information, assistance and counseling to Medicare beneficiaries of all ages and others who have questions about insurance and public benefit programs.

SHINE Program staff and a network of certified volunteer counselors provide information about Medicare, Medigap, Mass Health, prescription drug programs, and other health assistance programs. Medicare plans change every year. Review your options…SHINE Can Help!

Counseling and assistance is provided free of charge. To keep them abreast of the latest information, volunteer SHINE counselors receive ongoing training and supervision from HESSCO’s SHINE Program Director.

Carole and Jill are the counselors here at the Norwood Senior Center. Appointments are available every Tuesday and Wednesday 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., please call 781-762-1201 x5 to schedule an appointment.
