Deputization Project

New York City Deputization Project to Increase Enrollment in Medicare Savings Programs

The Medicare Rights Center's Deputization Project trains over 700 community advocates and social workers to become deputized agents. These agents, based in communities throughout the five boroughs, are trained to apply for Medicare Savings Programs on behalf of their clients. The application process is complex and requires a knowledgeable advocate to ensure it is processed correctly. Our deputized agents have access to our experts and resources, and submit completed applications to us.

Since the project's inception in 2003, the Medicare Rights Center's Deputization Project has helped more than 3,000 New York City residents save millions of dollars in health care expenses.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you're interested in becoming one of our deputized agents.
