HSA’s & Medicare

And we got sooooo close to a day without a scarimonial!   Until I hosted a community ed class last night. A gentleman is working, he’s over age 66 now, fully funding his HSA and did all the right things! As in did NOT take Medicare Part A at age 65.  I asked how he knew...

Good Stories!

Since we don’t want to keep harping on horror stories…. Gywnn and I attended an advisor appreciation dinner last week.  80 people or so in attendance.  It was year two attending the event so the clients had some familiarity (with me at least). We hear and discover this piece over and over:  People just want...

All In A Day!

We were fortunate to pop into a financial firm’s client appreciation event – wow, what an event!  Over 350 people in attendance.  I would guess about 60% of them to be Medicare eligible. 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...

You Never Know….

We know but people are skeptical 🙂 We did two sessions yesterday for a financial planner (Danielle Holmes in Howell, MI – she’s awesome)….. There’s a couple that comes to the session every time we hold it. So, trip #3, knowing that these two have a UHC Plan F, we said “ok, last call –...

The confusion is costly…

A financial advisor called our line today for some help.  His clients have Tricare for Life coverage.  Awesome coverage that acts like a Medigap plan for these folks.  Ideal.  When we run into Tricare for Life we say “good for you, enjoy and have a good life”. Well, another agent didn’t do that.  When these...

Introducing our Scaremonial page

We are constantly, and I mean constantly, talking about the crazy stuff that we see in Medicare-land.  My mother always says “you need to write a book compiling those things”.  So, next best thing is a web page. We’ll post things that we see that are good for you to read and to obviously avoid! ...

Plan B… Part B…. HELP!

Too many “B’s”….. This time we’re talking about Medigap Plan B. (Not Medicare’s Part B).  Medigap has the “alphabet soup” of plans, remember? We don’t often see Plan B’s but they are out there! Please take 30 minutes with us to review your plan every so often…. Here’s why. We had a person call for...
