D-Day!!

Wow, that went quickly! The Annual Election Period was a blur for us in Medicare-Land.  I was realizing last night that my guess is that we (as an agency) touched approximately 15,000 lives in 2018.

Chat feature – on our site…

Dumb advice…. Or just lack of advice?

We spend a lot of time trying to drill into people’s brains that you are only “eligible” for Medicare at age 65, not that you have to enroll it, not that you should enroll into it, nor not that you SHOULDN’T enroll into it…..   What should you do when you are faced with enrolling or...
