AAA 1-B Michigan Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) is looking for people who are computer savvy, love to learn, and are self-starters to server as volunteer Medicare counselors. Navigating Medicare is great for people who love solving puzzles, but a lot more rewarding. AAA 1-B will be holding three-day trainings in July (Oakland and Macomb) and August (Washtenaw) for those interested in becoming Certified MMAP counselors. Volunteers provide counseling in person and by phone to people with Medicare. Volunteer opportunities include Livingston County. Learn more.
