Easing the transition to Medicare
With 50 years of Medicare experience we have what it takes to help your employees make the transition to Medicare. When members turn 64, we kick off a 13-month information campaign that includes letters, guides, reminder calls, and emails to help them understand their options so you don`t have to spend the time. And it`s already included in your benefits, so you don`t need to opt in or sign up.
