Mission Statement

The mission of WestArk RSVP is to enrich the lives of our members and through their significant volunteer service, enhance life in our community.

In addition to partnering with over 100 local non-profit organizations, WestArk RSVP manages its own program - RSVP COmmunity Outreach - which provide direct assistance to the community.

Description

RSVP Community Outreach is providing free, one-on-one assistance to people with Medicare and their families via face-to-face sessions, public education presentations and other programs.

Volunteers assist Medicare beneficiaries in applying for federal Low-Income subsidy (LIS) and the Arkansas Medicare Savings Programs; problem solving snafus with Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services and private insurers; and counseling new Medicare beneficiaries. Volunteers prepare federal LIS and state MSB applications and aid in accessing information on the www.Medicare.gov website. Over forty percent of the adults over age 60 in our community have difficulty with the paperwork required by applications for social safety net programs because of illiteracy, vision problems or comprehension problems due to illness.
