Medicare Education

I'm here to help educate you about Medicare and the choices you have heading into retirement. Medicare Supplemental Insurance is there to fill in the gaps between what Medicare provides you as a benefit and your pocketbook. Insurance choices are not easy to understand. I believe when choosing your Medicare Supplemental, you will want a plan you want to "own," not "rent," as depending on your healthcare story, you may not be able to change plans after your initial enrollment.

Everyone's desires or needs are different. What may be right for your neighbor may not be right for you. It is my goal to lay a foundation of understanding for you as you make your own choices regarding your healthcare and KNOW why you made the choices you did.

Helping YOU is my passion!
