Medicare Rights works with a committed corps of over 180 volunteers who serve in our New York City headquarters and in the field.

Our outstanding volunteer team includes people of all ages with diverse interests, talents and origins. They have backgrounds as health care professionals, lawyers, administrators, teachers, artists and more. Some of our volunteers are retired professionals while others work and contribute their time after business hours.

Volunteers make up more than three quarters of the Medicare Rights workforce. They are integral to our work and to our mission.

Medicare Rights has several volunteer opportunities to meet varied interests and schedules. No prior Medicare knowledge is required, but a desire to learn about Medicare is essential. Volunteers receive comprehensive training and always have access to staff support to perform their role effectively.Learn more
