Florida Offers Health Insurance Advice & Other Services to Older Citizens at SHINE

Now days health issues and options can be confusing to everyone, and especially to those of use who tend to utilize the health system more than our younger counterparts. Oh, for the days when we were 15 and indestructible (or so we thought, haha)!

The State of Florida has set up a site called SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) where seniors can get useful information and advice concerning health and other issues such as:

  • Medicare
  • Fraud and Scams
  • Medicaid
  • Prescription Assistance
  • Long-Term Care
  • And More!!

To get to their site, just click on the following link:

They also have an Elder Hotline that is available. The number is: 1-800-963-5337 Sometimes talking with someone is easier than working via the computer and it is great to have the option of calling the SHINE office to get help.

So when you get a moment, why not check out this site and see if it can be of use to you. In these difficult economic times we can use all the help we can get!

If I can be of any assistance feel free to call me at: 813-783-4444 or e-mail me at:  I will do my best to help you with your problem.  Why not also stop by my webpage at:  Lots of useful information there especially if you are looking for a home to buy or are thinking of selling your current residence.
