52- 52 Gratitude – Wrapping Up the Year
In reflecting on the events and successes of the past year, one certainty prevails.
Expert guidance, education, and preparation can help lessen the stresses of things we don’t have experience navigating.
The Medicare Architects was formed as a consultative arm of our parent company, American Retirement Advisors, to make Medicare@ Work easy. Our retiree clients expressed a desire to learn about Medicare while still working. So they could plan and make educated decisions about Medicare before and when they needed it. Our team was formed to provide ready support to your employees with anything Medicare.
You partnered with us to share that vital planning opportunity with your employees – your employees spoke, and you listened.
Our company began under a primary foundation by laying an ethical cornerstone that makes us unique. To provide ‘client-first’ services by putting ethical principles foremost and creating a ‘better way of doing things. So based on that cornerstone, we provide education on Medicare, transparent plan comparison processes, non-bias fiduciary guidance, and ongoing benefits support after retirement. Creating for employees the same confident level of support as they enjoyed with you when they were active employees.
We look forward to working with more companies in the coming year.
If you experienced a value in working with us or we helped make a difference in your role by providing Medicare guidance to your employees, please let a colleague know. Share our blog link with them. Medicareatwork.com Or have them contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can tell other companies how we can help them, but there is no truer testimony of our value than your shared experience.
The Medicare Architects team wishes you and your employees all the best in the coming new year.

When learning something new, it’s best to take things in steps. With Medicare it’s best to start with basic education as the first step.
Medicare’s AEP provides an essential opportunity for folks to find out if the plans they are on are still appropriate for their needs – or they can change their plans.
Many of our clients will ask, “Which is more popular? A Medicare Advantage plan or Original Medicare with a Medicare Supplement and a drug plan?” The answer should be based on each individual’s needs, not what’s popular.
When Medicare information comes from a trusted HR resource, like a CMP, partnership leads to employee confidence.
Employees enrolled in Medicare or anyone you know enrolled in Medicare need to be cautious in responding to any solicitations they receive.
What can folks do when they retire and are on Medicare, and then want to go back to work and enroll in their employer’s health benefits.
Employees trust their HR partner first for benefit guidance. Having Medicare experts available as a trusted resource will help you provide them with guidance when they are considering Medicare.
Choosing a plan based on a TV ad, a neighbor’s experience (good or bad), a postcard mailer, or a family member’s advice is not based on EXPERT advice. Unless, of course, your neighbor is a Certified Medicare Planner®!
When working past age 65 make sure your employer’s health plan is creditable before you defer your Medicare enrollment when first eligible.
COBRA after age 65 presents many unrealized risks when enrolling in Medicare later. Create a Medicare transition plan to avoid these risks.
