  • Medicare with Melissa

Congratulations! Good for you, it is time to kick back and enjoy! If you are over 65 then you will already have Medicare Part A (since you turned 65). However, you may have to apply for part B if you delayed these benefits, as you were still working. Your options are:

  • If you delayed your part B benefits, you will need to contact the Social Security office and apply. You will need to submit a letter of credible coverage indicating why you enrolled late. This will help you to avoid any late penalty.
  • If you didn’t delay your part B benefits, you will still need a letter of credible coverage from the current employer or insurance carrier in order to apply for insurance plans: Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage, Prescription Drug Plans.  
  • Enroll into a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan to help cover the gaps in Original Medicare (add on a Part D).
  • Enroll into a Medicare Advantage Plan

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.

Oh my gosh!! I was so confused about the Medicare Supplement process. I am turning 65 soon and am retired and have always had insurance thru my former employer. I didn’t know a thing about going on Medicare and was struggling to sort it all out.

A friend of mine recommended contacting Senior HealthCare Solutions, so I did. Melissa was FANTASTIC!! She was professional, responsive, caring and friendly. She explained the steps I needed to take, gathered my information, helped me choose good plans for MY specific needs and took care of my applications over the phone. 1-2-3, eesy-peesy and I was done!! And it didn’t cost me a DIME!!! WOW!!! I HIGHLY recommend Senior Healthcare Solutions for anyone who’s overwhelmed with making the right choices with Medicare Supplemental Insurance and Rx coverage. It’ll take a load off your mind!
