Medicare Open Enrollment Volunteers Needed

The Isabella County Commission on Aging is recruiting new volunteers who are interested in a short term commitment.  We are asking for support in assisting older adults with reviewing their prescription coverage.  The COA will be holding trainings for new and returning volunteers, which will guide those interested through the open enrollment process.  Volunteers need to have basic computer skills, type and are able to use the internet.  

Trainings will be held in early October and will benefit both new volunteers and returning volunteers.
    ♦  No Experience necessary, although helpful
    ♦  Open Enrollment will run from October 15 - December 7
    ♦  Great way to learn about prescription drug plans and
        upcoming changes

To register as a volunteer, please contact Ginny Cain  at (989)772-0748.
