Help your community and support all of our essential services!


Are you confused by all the different Medicare Plans available to you? Do you want to learn more about Medicare in general? Our AmeriCorps Seniors program has trained volunteers who can help you learn the basics about Medicare.

What We Offer

Our volunteers can:

  • Review your current benefit plan with you.
  • Assist you so you can make an annual informed decision.
  • Help you learn what has changed with benefits available to you each year.
  • Find drug plans to choose from that fit your current health needs.
  • Search for cost savings for you!

While we can coach you about different plans, you make your own choice and enroll in the plan that best meets your needs.
