Medicare Information

Turning 65 comes with the important decision to transition into Medicare. Original Medicare (Parts A and B) helps cover doctor visits and hospital stays, but there is more that it doesn’t cover. Depending on your specific needs, there are different Medicare health plans that can offer more coverage. With so many Medicare plans available, it can be confusing to decide which plan is right for you.

As part of our commitment to providing you quality, affordable care, we are working with local licensed insurance specialists to help you find the Medicare plan that best fits your needs. We proudly host space for Licensed Medicare Specialists at each location. Our Licensed Medicare Specialists are available via e-mail, phone, and in-person during regular business hours.
