Online: Empower Seniors to Access Healthcare through Insurance

Save to Favorites

JABA

  • 1 person is interested

No one should have to choose between paying for their prescriptions or their rent, but many seniors are in that exact situation. By choosing the right prescription plan that meets their individual needs, seniors can free up income to meet their basic needs - or spoil their grandchildren! JABA's Insurance Counseling volunteer team works to educate local seniors on what prescription plan works for them.

And we need more team members! Join us virtually through being a Zoom Greeter:

  • Greeters/Receptionists meet clients as they login to Zoom and make them feel welcome and comfortable, completing any additional paperwork and connecting them to their counselor through breakout rooms.

Each member of our Insurance Counseling Team provides direct and valuable support to our community that has historically saved local seniors millions of dollars on their prescriptions.

Ready to join the team and make an impact?
Email wbroadhurst@jabacares.org or call 434-817-5226 to get more information.

This is a virtual opportunity. High speed internet and access to Zoom required. We work in the Eastern Time Zone. Please be mindful of time zones as you sign up for shifts.
