If you think Medicare is difficult to understand, you can help people with that. You can volunteer at Senior Services of Snohomish County (SSSC) with the Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors (SHIBA) program.
As a SHIBA volunteer your job is answering questions, providing information, furnishing referrals and generally helping consumers navigate through the world of insurance companies as it relates to Medicare.
There are 30 hours of training and mentoring, and 3 hours a month in the office for updates to regulations.
As a SHIBA volunteer you part of a network of trained volunteers who educate, assist and advocate for comsumers about their rights and options regarding health insurance issues and health care access. You provide information so they can make an informed decision.
