Our Services include



Medicare was never meant to cover all your doctor and hospital  bills.   That's why its so important to know about the choices you have available AND what works best for your individual needs and budget.   

Don't fall victim to  advertisements that say a Medicare Plan includes all things and cost $0, that is not the truth!   We'll explain the details so you understand. 


Dental, Vision and Hearing Plans

Many people are unaware that Medicare doesn’t cover everything.      

One important service to consider is choosing your Dental, Vision and Hearing plan.  These plans go hand in hand with a Medicare Supplemental policy.  We  will go over several options so you have what you need at affordable pricing.

Below is a list of some of the items and services that aren't covered by Medicare.

  • Most dental care
  • Eye examinations related to prescribing glasses
  • Dentures 
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Acupuncture 
  • Hearing aids and exams for fitting them 
  • Long-term care  
  • Concierge care (also called concierge medicine, retainer-based medicine, boutique medicine, platinum practice, or direct care)
