Health insurance volunteer training

The Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program, a free service that helps seniors and the disabled understand the complexities of the Medicare health benefits to which they are entitled, is starting training soon for new volunteer counselors in San Joaquin County.

Counselors typically volunteer 20 hours per month during normal business hours in Lodi, Manteca, Stockton and Tracy. All that’s needed is computer literacy and the desire to give back to the community.
