I've always been able to get very helpful information from my agent Patty Gogerty, and she got me all set up with all my Medicare plans three years ago and continues to steer me through my renewals (or changes) each year! Also, when I moved from Decatur, IL, to Lexington, SC, I was able to stay with my agent without any problems. I've had excellent service from this agency.

L.B., Customer
Patty Gogerty is just THE BEST!!!! We were so confused when we began going to her for advice on supplemental insurances for both my husband and myself. She guided us through the hoops and saved us hours and hours of stressful time... She did not push any one insurance at us, rather gave us our options with clear cut data and then waited for us to make our choices... I can't imagine navigating through this nightmare of benefits without a the person she is. She is able to navigate quickly through many computer screens and enter our information with immediate results.. Please, please do not eliminate this service.... Many, many folks would be lost and paying much more than they needed to. Plus, you have to understand there are millions of retired folks that don't even own a computer or iPhone... Thanks, Patty, for the GREAT service you provide and your love and compassion!
L.B., Customer
I appreciate the help we get from you.
D.W., Customer

B.B., Customer
You showed up at my door before I was ready to get supplemental insurance. But I remembered you because of it. Then, before I signed with you I had tried to see if I qualified for any help with costs thru Human Services. I didn't, but I was told by a caseworker to check online for what was offered. When I mentioned your company, she said you were very competitive and up to date. She had a good report about you. You have been very attentive, friendly and helpful at all times.
