OSHIIP Volunteers - New Volunteer Training Sessions

Volunteers drive OSHIIP. Dedicated people are needed to be volunteers in all parts of Ohio. As a volunteer you’ll learn Medicare basics; you’ll help people in your com​munity; and you’ll have the satisfaction of taking part in a truly worthy cause.
Licensed insura​​nce agents, or those affiliated with an insurance company, a claims filing service or financial planning service are not eligible for our program. Being an OSHIIP volunteer would constitute a conflict of interest.

The OSHIIP initial volunteer training consists of self-paced on-line training modules with about 8-hours of material including videos, resources, knowledge checks and a final exam.  Once you complete the online modules, volunteers will meet with the OSHIIP community liaison in their area and will be expected to report regular client contacts, public media and outreach, and attend annual volunteer refresher training sessions to maintain an active volunteer status.

View an introduction video on how to get started as an OSHIIP volunteer.
