Medicare volunteers needed

Posted on Monday, August 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

The Tennessee State Health Insurance Assistance Program (TN SHIP) is offering training classes to volunteers on August 13 and 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Mt. Pleasant.

Attendees will learn to help seniors understand Medicare and find appropriate insurance coverage. They will also be able to educate beneficiaries of possible fraud and abuse issues.

TN SHIP asks that applicants have plenty of free time and be enthusiastic and ready to learn. Applicants must attend both sessions in order to complete the program. All materials required for the classes will be provided.

TN SHIP is a not for profit agency that provides Medicare information and counseling to beneficiaries in a 13 county area in south central Tennessee. For more information or to make reservations, call Laura Dial at (931) 379-2956 or email
