We joke with our clients that “now that you’re 65, we’re going to treat you like a five year old… steps 1,  2, 3, etc”.  Here’s what we typically hear back — “THANK YOU!”  “FINALLY!” We get it. You want good and comprehensive health insurance,  you want it to be fairly priced and you want...

Wellll, we’ve had a rash of Part B stories! Can I give Part B back? (YES). Well, this should have taken this person about three weeks to accomplish.  She called us yesterday and eight months later, still has her Part B in place.  It should be a form to sign, received by Medicare and –...

After the sessions, Gwynn and I were approached with a number of questions, concerns and more about Medicare. It’s the usual reaction...

So, I happen to really, really dislike “the exchanges” out there that are used by companies to provide Medicare assistance/sales for their retirees. I just had another call with a UPS retiree that is able to get a stipend annually but is also directed to “the exchange” to talk about Medicare options.  She knew heading...

Not many people get excited about the new handbook like we silly Medicare Guru’s do! But, it’s out.  In fact, I was speaking with a gentleman over the phone yesterday who was referred to us.  Here’s our conversation in a nutshell. “So and so attended your class and suggested I call you.” “excellent – you...

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...
