LAF is looking for Spanish-speaking volunteers in our Medical Debt Relief Project.
LAF’s Medical Debt Relief Project helps eligible clients prepare the necessary paperwork to request a waiver of medical debts from hospitals. Financial assistance and charity care are a great way for people of low income to lower their debts without filing bankruptcy.
Volunteers need not be attorneys, but must be detail-oriented and able to communicate effectively with clients. We are asking for a minimum commitment to the project of three months, 10 hours per week. The schedule is flexible.
The position includes face-to-face and phone interviews with clients and assisting clients with filling out the proper forms. The volunteer will also follow-up with clients to obtain the necessary supporting documentation, and file applications and follow up with the hospitals to ensure that the applications are processed in a timely fashion.
If you are interested and wish you learn more about this opportunity, please email your resume to Federico Guzman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.347.8364.
