Help us help people in your Minnesota community of Grand Rapids.
Become a Senior LinkAge Line volunteer Medicare counselor and help people in your Minnesota community in which you live. We have opportunities to do Medicare counseling, give live and remote presentations on Medicare and Medicare fraud awareness, and to help staff outreach events in our communities.
Counselors help Medicare consumers in Minnesota, their families, and caregivers, better understand Medicare options by providing information and referrals regarding resources. Counselors will also help Medicare consumers in Minnesota enroll in programs that could assist with health insurance costs and reduce prescription drug costs. You also have opportunities to lead Medicare related online classes and outreach.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us. Upon a successful background check, and the completion of the 18-hour training class, volunteers will receive certification through the Minnesota Board on Aging as a Health Insurance Counselor with the State Health Insurance and Assistance Program (SHIP). Our next three-day training class starts soon.
If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity now, we can get you an application to complete. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator with your questions.
Volunteers will receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance and outreach to older Americans in your community.
If you are interested in volunteering to become a Medicare counselor in your community then please contact Lee our Volunteer Coordinator at the Senior LinkAge Line, at 800.333.2433, Ext. 81019.
