“As I approached my 65th birthday and Medicare eligibility, I was interested in quality Medicare, Medicare Supplement, and Medicare Drug plans. In addition, I wanted the lowest monthly premium rates possible with quality plans. I tend to shop for the best price/value available and Medicare was no exception.

To ensure the above, I was open to the possibility of hiring a Medicare consultant to review my situation and make recommendations. I did a pretty thorough internet search to identify a competent and reputable firm. The first discovery I made was that there are many Medicare brokers out there who represent specific Medicare providers and, by definition, are not completely objective. I quickly focused on independent Medicare consultants and identified a half dozen viable companies.

Healthcare Navigation very quickly separated themselves from the other firms. I initially spoke directly with Maura Carley, Founder and President of Healthcare Navigation. Maura impressed me with her thorough knowledge of Medicare and her focus on doing the right thing for her clients. She referred me to the Regional Director who is responsible for the area where my wife and I live. The Regional Director, after having me answer a number of questions, expertly and efficiently suggested Medicare plans which I accepted and with which I have been very happy. My spouse has recently repeated this process as she approaches her 65th birthday.

I happily and unequivocally recommend Healthcare Navigation as a very worthwhile resource for anyone making the transition to Medicare.”

“Trying to understand Medicare and its complex rules is as challenging as learning a foreign language, which it is. Quick—if you can’t immediately state the differences between the General Enrollment Period, the Special Enrollment Period and the Initial Enrollment Period—then you are in trouble. Trouble that will cost you many thousands of dollars from the day you enroll till the day you pass on. We highly recommend the expert advice and guidance provided by Healthcare Navigation. Don’t wait. They helped us and they will help you. Then, you will recommend them to your friends too.”

“I read about Healthcare Navigation in the Wall Street Journal. That was a lucky find. They helped my wife and me with several coverage transitions including relocation. I had no idea the extent to which moving affects your health insurance and the bureaucratic headaches one can face.”

“Healthcare Navigation provides an invaluable service that saves me time, sometimes money and untold aggravation. They have helped three generations of my family since 2003. Their service is excellent.”

“When I retired from my financial advisory firm, my wife and I had ample time to plan our transition onto Medicare which we assumed would be straightforward. After all, I had dealt with complex financial matters on behalf of clients for years and my wife had worked in healthcare. Instead we found ourselves lost in the alphabet soup, acronyms, and terms which dealing with Medicare entails. We received expert guidance from Healthcare Navigation and have maintained an ongoing relationship with them.”

“I am so grateful for all the help and support you gave me and my children after David’s death during such a devastating time in our lives. I hope that our experience might help a widow or widower’s family from being confronted with the same termination of coverage problems that we experienced.”
