Not sure what plan is right for you? Take Our Medicare Quiz

I have group insurance through my employer, do I still need Medicare?

  • Medicare with Melissa

If you continue to work you may have the option to keep your current insurance. In most cases, we find it more cost effective to leave the employer plan and go on Medicare with secondary insurance. Your options are:

  • Keep your current insurance through the employer. If you do this, we highly recommend that you DELAY your Part B benefits. There is no reason to pay for Part B when you have creditable coverage through your employer that you already pay for.
  • Move to Medicare and enroll into a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan to help cover the gaps in Original Medicare (add on a Part D).
  • Move to Medicare and enroll into a Medicare Advantage Plan.

Once you lose the coverage through your employer, whether you retire or your group plan drops you, then you will need to enroll in Part B and start to look at the different options for coverage available to you.

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!
