Becoming a Medicare Medicaid Volunteer
Are you interested in helping others in your community? Becoming a MMAP volunteer allows you to use your time and talents to help Medicare and Medicaid recipients understand their benefits and choices. You will help people apply for benefits, make choices during open enrollment, work through issues, find ways to lower their health care costs, and make sure they are getting the most out of their benefits. The Michigan Medicare Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) is part of the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). This national network offers free, unbiased counseling and assistance for people with Medicare or Medicaid. MMAP volunteers are educators, advocates and guides.
Some of things a MMAP volunteer can help with:
- Providing administrative support (data entry or helping assemble materials)
- Providing one-one-one counseling to Medicare/Medicaid recipients
- Manning a booth and answering questions at a senior or health fair
- Presenting to groups at senior centers or other community venues
MMAP is looking for people who are computer and internet savvy. MMAP volunteers receive ongoing training and support to help them understand and keep up-to-date on Medicare and Medicaid. If you are interested in becoming a MMAP volunteer, please complete the following form.
