I was in search of a new Medicare supplement plan when I got a call from Patricia's office. I met with her a few days later, and she helped me through the entire process of picking a new plan. I had been contemplating other changes for a month, but the choices started to confuse me. So, Patricia took the time to explain the differences to me and in no time a all, I had a new plan. I wish I had called her a month ago. Many thanks to you Patricia, and Sams/Hockaday.

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.
