The first and most important thing you should know if you’re new to Medicare, is that you’re not alone. Over the next 20 years, approximately 10,000 Americans per day will turn 65 and become eligible to apply for their hard-earned, Medicare benefits. For most people, enrolling in Medicare will be the first time they’ve selected their own health insurance coverage; as employers typically choose their coverage. We understand selecting the right plan can be confusing and overwhelming to say the least… Have no fear; we are here to help you, and go through this process together.
The Medicare system is already complex as it is; we often find people enrolling in plans that don’t provide proper coverage for their needs, or overpay for their plan. The decisions you make when first enrolling in Medicare are very important and can have lasting effects on your healthcare coverage and the amount you pay for it.
The combination of Parts A & B of Medicare become our basic hospitalization and medical coverage and is commonnly referred to as Original Medicare. This foundation of coverage is usually complemented by either electing a Medicare Supplement or Part C Advantage plan.
Paying for Medicare coverage works a little differently then how we paid our health insurance premiums during our working years. While most of us have paid one large premium for all of our healthcare coverage during our working years, Medicare coverage is paid in several smaller amounts for individual parts of coverage.
Getting started early is one of the best things you can do to ensure a stress free enrollment into Medicare. Starting early allows you time to get your paperwork submitted and approved with enough time to spare to easily handle any issues that may arise along the way.
Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D) or PDP are plans that are offered through private insurance companies and help you pay for both brand name and generic drugs. Part D plans are available as a standalone policy or in combination with a Medicare Advantage plan.
Medicare Hero is GREAT. I needed to enroll in Medigap plans G & D for the first time during my Special Enrollment Period and Brooke made the process easy. She quoted several available plans for each and then tailored them to my specific needs. Can’t go wrong with Medicare Hero!!!
Brooke was a great help in helping me through the Medicare process. Very knowledgable and answered all my questions in a way I could understand. Medicare is a very confusing process. I appreciate the help so much!
Brooke helped me navigate through the process of obtaining Medicare supplemental insurance for myself and my husband. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail. Would not have made it happen without her. Keep up the great work Brooke! I hope your employer appreciates you.
I have had spectacular service from them. I have used them for the past 3 years. They helped me to understand what was best for me when I first retired. Now, I send them an email every October with the plans I am currently on, the medication I take, my Medicare plan and ask them if these are still my best options. They review and get back to me within days. A great company. I have recommended them to several people and they are also happy with this service
Brooke Burland was my contact and she was excellent!! Very professional, courteous and fast
She walked me thru my choices and had me signed up in no time. She made what I thought would be a painful process extremely painless and easy
I wish there were some way to stop all other flyers I am inundated with for help with Medicare, as none can compare with Medicare Hero and the courteous and understanding assistance I received from Brooke Burland, who must be one of the best of this magnificent team. Thank you so much!
Signed up for their webinar… Made finding an affordable plan easy and signing up effortlessly! Highly recommend
Brooke Burland was my contact. She was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in providing information, answering questions, and helping to navigate through the process. She was very professional, responsive, and consistently provided very useful information and excellent results, all in a very timely manner.
Medicare Hero is a wonderful company. I was very confused with all the options for coverage, especially with prescription drugs and Brooke Burland helped answer all (and there were many) questions about how this works. I’m very relieved that this is taken care of and recommend anyone to Brooke. She knows what’s she is doing and makes you feel comfortable.
Brooke and Medicare Hero helped me navigate the complex process of choosing the best Medicare supplement plan G and prescription drug Plan D. She sent me quotes from three companies, answered all of my questions and stepped me through the application. She returns calls and messages promptly and made the entire process very easy. Thank you Brooke, I could not have done it without your knowledge and professionalism!
