Help the vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries understand their rights and benefits!

If you are seeking a rewarding opportunity to make a difference in the community and find new connections and friends while you volunteer, then I strongly encourage you to join the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) team here at Sourcewise, Santa Clara, California.

Sourcewise - HICAP Santa Clara, California is looking for compassionate, dependable, committed candidates to become HICAP Volunteer Counselors.

As a HICAP Counselor, you will help provide free assistance and educate Medicare beneficiaries, analyze their Insurance needs, compare policies, help with filing claims and appeals or help fill out applications for assistance. Volunteer Counselors will provide free in-person and over-the-phone counseling. Counseling will be provided at our HICAP office or at one of the local senior centers or community centers located in Santa Clara County. Volunteer Counselors have the opportunity to train and get certified to present at Sourcewise's HICAP outreach events at local senior centers or community centers. HICAP Counselors will receive no-cost extensive initial training online (self-pace courses) as well as virtually through California Health Advocates (8-week course) followed by one-one mentorship training with an experienced HICAP Counselor prior to taking the state registration test.

Those who complete the training and pass the test will be registered with the California Department of Aging as HICAP Counselors.
