Medicare Counseling helps individuals and families understand how to navigate the Medicare system and secure supplemental insurance to meet their changing healthcare needs.
The Medicare Assistance Program provides information, assistance and encouragement to individuals and families in matters related to Medicare. The program reaches out to the community by providing speakers to groups about Medicare as it relates to individuals, the disabled, and caregivers. We offer Medicare Counseling at both the Oak and the Campbell Campus.

WHERE TO START
VOLUNTEER ROLE OPPORTUNITIES
Our Medicare program at both locations is thriving, and we are in desperate need of more volunteers to help handle the volume of requests for assistance that we receive each day.
This is very satisfying volunteer work. Please let me know if you plan to attend the training and become certified by calling 816.444.1121 or 816.753.7039.
