Yelp review from Stu K:
Insurance is about safety, protection, peace of mind. But finding one's way in the mindbogglingly complicated world that is today's health insurance market requires sage, sure advice and guidance from someone who also brings along tons of patience. A friend's recommendation led my family and me to Jon Katz, who has answered innumerable questions about Affordable Care Act insurance, COBRA, Medigap, and Medicare's Part D. Jon is crystal clear about the principles he uses to gauge plans, the tradeoffs one needs to ponder, ways to get solid value for the buck, and where savings are possible. His responses are jargon-free, he probes gently to make sure information is understood and questions are sufficiently addressed, and he laces conversations with respectful good humor and uncommon kindness. Jon Katz is #1 in my book.
Happy Father's Day! This Fortune Magazine ad circa 1937 is a great reminder for dads -- and moms -- to review your life insurance. Is your family protected? https://vamedicalplans.com/life-insurance/
We all paid a lunch-time visit to Employee Benefits Corporation of America (EBCA) to say a huge THANK YOU for their partnership. We could not do what we do without their support! It was a great afternoon celebrating #teamwork!
Home of the free because of the brave. Honoring those who have served our country, today and every day.
Turning 65 in 2020? The rules are changing. Plan F -- the most popular Medigap plan -- will no longer be sold after 1/1/20. But fear not! There will still be a great option for you. Be in touch with us and we'll be happy to advise!
I want to thank my dedicated colleagues, our incredible clients and the team at Anthem for this recognition as the top Medicare producer for Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield in VIrginia for 2018. A team effort all the way! #theteam
