David Gotthardt, state registered HICAP Counselor (Medicare counselor), is a compassionate and loyal HICAP volunteer since 2013. He has worked to provide Medicare counseling to many, many seniors and persons with disabilities who have Medicare. Each day that he is scheduled to answer telephone calls in the HICAP Call Center he arrives much earlier than asked, even before the call center opens. His approachable, yet confident manner with worried seniors always makes them feel at ease. This is his gift. During the Medicare Open Enrollment (Oct. 15th through Dec. 7th) he joined teams of HICAP counselors to help seniors compare their health plans at local senior centers. David is a valuable volunteer and we are very grateful for his service. We nominate David Gotthardt, for the Spirit of Volunteerism.
