The Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS) is a long-term project for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. We are seeking organized, detail-oriented individuals to interview Medicare recipients for a health care study.

Successful applicants will be trained to use a laptop computer to collect health and insurance information from selected Medicare beneficiaries. Interviewers go into the homes of older and disabled individuals and record the costs of every medical visit the sampled persons made during the study period.

Candidates must:
• Be willing to commit to 2 years of household interviewing;
• Have a valid (current) driver’s license that is not under suspension and regular access to an insured, reliable vehicle;
• Have high speed Internet and a telephone;
• Be able to lift and carry up to 15 pounds, walk up to two blocks, and climb stairs while carrying a laptop computer with or without reasonable accommodations;
• Be available to work at least 6 hours per day, 4 weekdays per week; and
• Attend two paid mandatory out-of-town training sessions in 2013 (July 28th – August 5th and September 14th – 23rd).

Bilingual Interviewers fluent in Spanish are encouraged to apply.

Any offer of employment will be contingent upon receipt of acceptable results from a background screening based on the specific position which will include, at a minimum, criminal records history.

We are looking for candidates who reside in specified counties. Applicants will be hired to work in the county that they either reside in or are adjacent to. This is a part-time nonexempt position with limited benefits. Pay rates are based on geographic location and level of experience.

Working on this study can be a fascinating, rewarding experience. If you are a reliable self-starter and have a minimum high school diploma or GED, this position may be right for you.
