Our Medicare Insurance services include:
- Consultations with individuals who are approaching their Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) i.e. Turning 65
- Lunch and learn Medicare presentations for employer groups who want to educate their employee population nearing or working past the age of 65. This will provide an opportunity for this age group to learn about Medicare and the options available to them. Such as Medicare Supplement Plans otherwise known as MediGap policies, and Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) and Prescription Drug plan options (Part D).
- Employers are not allowed to entice employees working past the age of 65 to discontinue their group plan and/or offer a financial incentive to do so.
- Medicare Costs for 2023 are located on the link above the Medicare & You 2023 link. These documents are updated every December for the following year.
