Want to become a SHICK Volunteer?

The SHICK program relies heavily on volunteers to accomplish its mission to educate and assist Medicare beneficiaries with questions about Medicare and other insurance, and to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, error and abuse through outreach, counseling and education. Volunteers will assist with administrative tasks, distribute information, staff booths at outreach events, make presentations when appropriate, help people who have Medicare questions, and much more. All volunteers are screened and background checked by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services Before performing any volunteer service for SHICK. Volunteers must complete an online training consisting of basic Medicare information and then attend a 1 day training conducted by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services staff. Local volunteers are then supervised by the Area Agency on Aging and attend annual update training. Volunteers can determine what they wish to do as a volunteer and how much time they wish to commit to the program each week or each month. To inquire about becoming a volunteer contact the Special Projects Coordinator at (785) 242-7200 or (800) 633-5621 today!.
