Volunteers Needed in Allegan

1/28/2013 3:15pm

The Michigan Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) is looking for volunteers in Allegan to help older adults navigate the Medicare and Medicaid system.

Volunteers must be patient and enjoy learning. They also need internet, phone and problem solving skills and a desire to work with older adults and individuals with disabilities.

“Our MMAP Counselors play an important role in helping people understand their coverage and walking them through complex situations,” says Karen Rozelle, Regional MMAP Coordinator. “Medicare and Medicaid can be confusing and individuals come to us to help sort out these problems so we need volunteers who like to problem solve and find the answers, but who can also communicate well with our clients.”

Volunteers are required to attend an orientation and 36 hours of training in April in Grand Rapids, but will be stationed at the Allegan County Resource Development Committee (ACRDC) at 323 Water Street.

“MMAP is a statewide organization with offices throughout Michigan,” says Rozelle. “Our Allegan volunteers have done a wonderful job of serving their community and we are looking for more dedicated individuals to take on this important role.”

For more information on this volunteer opportunity, contact Karen Rozelle at (616) 456-5664.

The Michigan Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) is a non-profit organization that helps those 65 and older and those who are disabled with their Medicare and Medicaid concerns.  MMAP relies on volunteers to provide education to help people make informed decisions about their health care coverage. MMAP is a state-wide program that is operated in West Michigan by the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan (AAAWM), 1279 Cedar, NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. Offices are located throughout the nine county region served by AAAWM. Click here for more information on MMAP.
