Volunteers needed to become counselors providing free, objective and unbiased Medicare counseling with SHIIP (Seniors Health Insurance Information Program) in Greensboro, High Point and Guilford Country. You don't need a Medicare background. And online course and ongoing training and support provided.
You help people immensely with Medicare choices. Often you save them money. For example, one of my counselors saved a senior $14,000 a year on her medication costs by showing her a preferred pharmacy that charged less for her expensive meds than the non-preferred pharmacy she was using.
We also sign income-qualified people up for Extra Help, a program that saves them money on their medications. This is a rewarding and mentally stimulating opportunity. You get to make a difference in the lives of many people, seniors and disabled, who have or are going on Medicare.
