The adage of ‘one size fits all’ is taking a backseat when it comes to health benefit selection in a society where more workers are choosing to work longer instead of retiring. When it comes to benefit discussions with your over-65 employees what do those discussions feel like?
- Do your Medicare-eligible employees feel comfortable talking to your Benefits staff about Medicare?
- Is your group plan the best cost option for your Medicare-eligible employee?
- How do you know?
Could transitioning to Medicare provide a cost-saving option to your employee and/or company? Do you have a simple reliable tool that offers a comparison of your existing group plan costs versus Medicare to help guide in a decision for transitioning to Medicare?
The Medicare Architects. A company focused on providing employers with the team, tools, and technology they need to effectively transition eligible employees to Medicare. Their innovative Medicare Blueprint Builder is an industry first, combining the benefits of a full-service Medicare planning firm with the convenience of an online quoting tool.
The questions above are some of the ones we are constantly asked and why we created our company The Medicare Architects. With our help, the Medicare guidance process just got easier.

Curious about your Medicare Options?
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.
