I was impressed with the 20 o/o coverage priemium for Medicare and the drug coverage. With my original drug coverage plan going up you saved me quite a lot other wise I wouldn't have been able to afford it or the Medicare supplement. Thank you.

I love the competitive prices you were able to secure for me on both the drugs and supplemental health policies.
