How Medigap insurance helped Jerry and his wife after a cancer diagnosis

Transcript

My wife got cancer in June of this year so we have been using the Medicare options for the last 6 months and I will tell you that we received... just a couple months ago... our first billing, it was 53 pages, and I just wrote a check for our portion. It was $21.65 out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. So the question is - have we had to use it? We've used it!

We had no idea we'd be using Medicare, any portion of it. My wife went from just a couple of prescriptions to close to 20 and it has been covered, so yes we have used it.

We're very thankful that we have this company supporting us and I know that I can call up Michael or Jeff for anyone at this company and say "Are we still safe, are we still gonna be okay?" and the answer is always "you will be covered 100% just don't worry about it."

And we've not worried one minute we've been very very thankful for the support. But yeah we've used it!

NEW in 2020! Retirement Planning Seminars at the Sams Ranch

Are you entering into the world of Medicare and retirement? Saddle up – this one’s for you!

Medicare is confusing for almost everyone Michael talks to. Some people educate themselves for years and still can’t wrap their head around Medicare Part D drug plans. There are 26+ choices and the ever-mysterious penalties that are based on the “national base beneficiary premium” which just so happens to change every year…

It’s confusing. That’s why for the first time, Michael is offering a free, 1-hour seminar at his brand new family ranch. He is very proud of what he's built there and can’t wait to share it with the community. Even if you think you’ve got it all figured out, use this seminar as an excuse to visit the beautiful Sams Ranch!

On the first Tuesday of every month at 6pm starting in August 2020, you’re invited to come on out to shovel out the manure of Medicare! (Just kidding, no physical effort required!)

✓ Bring your spouse

✓ One hour long

✓ No sales pitch – this seminar is educational only!

✓ He'll be covering Medicare and retirement planning in plain language

Michael has been focused on serving our central IL community for over 15 years and would be honored if you’d attend this educational seminar.

There will be a hand sanitizer station at the entrance and face masks are optional.

There are a limited number of seats at each seminar, so please save your seat here: https://www.samshockaday.com/lp/retirement-planning-seminar-at-sams-ranch
