Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area seeks volunteers

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

CAPCOG Area Agency on Aging’s Benefits Counseling Program, whose certified staff helps older adults and other eligible consumers in Central Texas navigate Medicare issues such as health care coverage, plan enrollment, fraud prevention and more, is seeking caring volunteers.

The program has scheduled a free four-part series of volunteer training sessions from April through August 2013. Volunteers will learn about topics ranging from Medicare programs, eligibility guidelines and prescription drug coverage to documentation requirements, Medigap insurance and community outreach. Training also will include hands-on practice with mock consumer phone calls.  

Applicants are encouraged to reserve class spots early by calling 512?916?6022 or sending an email to bcpvolunteer@capcog.org. Space is limited, and registration closes five days before each class.

Please note: Insurance agents, insurance brokers, and financial planners are not eligible to volunteer with the Benefits Counseling Program.
