Enrollment volunteers help people with Medicare who live on limited incomes access benefits they’re entitled to.
Medicare health and prescription drug coverage cost money. Most people with Medicare pay monthly premiums, as well as copays or coinsurances and deductibles for most medical services and prescription drugs. For people with limited incomes, these costs can keep them from receiving the care they need.
There are various programs available to people with limited incomes that help pay for Medicare. Enrollment volunteers support the efforts of our staff, who screen thousands of callers every year for these programs.
