In this episode, I virtually meet up with “65 and Counting” host Adam Frye to tell you how our team formed and how we are helping employers and HR professionals integrate Medicare education and smoothly transition employees.
I joined The Medicare Architects, a ‘spinoff’ from parent company American Retirement Advisors, to help promote a unique service brand dedicated to employers and their employees by supporting everything Medicare!
Why? Because individuals were asking for it!
My background in marketing, insurance, and public relations created a trifecta for delivering helpful and successful consultative partnerships for making Medicare@ Work 123easy!
The Certified Medicare Planners® with The Medicare Architects, are poised to help employees working past age 65 and planning retirement so that they can learn about Medicare and see ALL their medical options and make choices relative to their needs.
