The Milestone – Everybody’s Doin’ it

 Employees turning 65 this year are joining a host of celebrities hitting the same milestone or getting ready to celebrate it.

Here are some stars who will celebrate the milestone of Medicare eligibility this year  –  (Umm…now would be a good time to hold on to your chair!)

  • Barry Williams
  • Maria Shriver
  • Eddie Van Halen
  • Reba McEntire
  • Bruce Willis
  • Kris Jenner
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • Howie Mandel
  • Kelsey Grammer

 Turning 65 opens new freedom of choice for healthcare benefits.

Share with your employees the opportunity to explore all of their healthcare options. Sometimes Medicare creates better saving opportunities and options for coverage, unlike group plans that are designed for groups of employees. For example, Medicare Advantage plans often have little or no premium and are similar to employer benefits by including dental and eye coverage. When switching to Medicare Advantage, Part A is usually free. Part B premium costs $144.60 per month for most enrollees in 2020. (Plus copays.)

We don’t want your employees to miss an opportunity to explore new options with Medicare. We can do a free analysis of the current group plan and Medicare with our Stay or Go Analysis™ to provide them an opportunity to transition to Medicare while still working if it makes sense.

We also offer educational seminars to explain the basics of Medicare so employees understand the benefit.  We teach when to enroll so employees can add Medicare planning to their exit strategy. That way when employees decide to transition to Medicare they have been provided with the tools to make choices that are appropriate for them.

Make Medicare part of your benefit discussion. We can help with those discussions so Medicare is a compliant offering. Our services are free to both you and your employees!

Everyone is sort-of a celebrity when they turn 65! Adding Medicare as a benefit offering with expert support helps your employees feel like celebrating the stars they are! 

When there is an opportunity of choice, partner with Certified Medicare Planners®  for Medicare transition because they will provide employees with fiduciary support and:

  • There is no fee for their services
  • Provide non-bias guidance
  • Carrier-agnostic analytic processes for providing all Medicare options in a particular market
  • Educational workshops on the basics of Medicare for both HR teams and employees


Create a compliant Medicare benefit support plan.

Give your employees personal guidance from a team of experts that will follow them after they retire.
