Have you been looking for a way to really help people in your community?
The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)/Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) is a statewide program that provides free and objective counseling and assistance to people with questions or problems regarding Medicare and other related health insurance.
SHIP/SMP answers questions about: Original Medicare; Advantage Plans; Prescription Drug Plans; Supplements; Medicare Fraud and Abuse; Medicare Covered Preventive Services; being under 65 and having Medicare; financial assistance with Medicare premiums, deductibles and copays; and much more.
Volunteer training will be held on Thursday, May 7 and Friday, May 8 at the South Central Tennessee Development District offices at 101 Sam Watkins Blvd in Mt. Pleasant. Potential volunteers must attend both sessions from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Our goal is to get volunteers trained to go out into their own communities into senior centers, assisted living facilities, churches, health fairs, etc. to make a real difference in people’s lives.
