Become a Senior LinkAge Line volunteer Medicare counselor and help people in the Minnesota community in which you live.
We are looking for volunteers who are willing to become trained Medicare counselors.
Counselors help Medicare consumers, their families and caregivers better understand Medicare options by providing information and referrals regarding resources. Counselors will also help Medicare consumers enroll in programs that could assist with health insurance costs and reduce prescription drug costs.
Our next 18-hour training class will be held remotely January 24 - 26, 2023. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity now, we can get you an application for you to complete. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator as soon as you can so we can work together to get you enrolled in a class. I need to get you enrolled in the class by January 17, 2023.
Volunteers receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance, outreach, and one-on-one counseling with Medicare consumers in your community. We hold Office Hours at the ElderCircle office in Grand Rapid, MN as needed.
If you have questions please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at the Senior LinkAge Line(r) at 1-800-333-2433, Ext. 81019.
