About Medicare Allies

Medicare is confusing. The more you seek out information, the more overwhelmed you feel.

You’re definitely not alone – the team behind Medicare Allies has been guiding and helping confused seniors for over 30 years. John Hockaday and Jeff Sams, the founders behind Medicare Allies, first began serving the central Illinois community through a local agency.

That agency grew, but it was only able to serve the local community. To expand their reach, John and Jeff began serving independent insurance agents across the country to help as many individuals as possible.

No matter where you live, we will either find an agent near you, or our team at Medicare Allies will serve you via our in-house team.

Our mission is to take the confusion out of Medicare by finding the best insurance coverage for you and your budget. We aren’t tied to any one carrier, so we can shop around for the best coverage at the best rate. You can finally experience peace of mind without needing to know the ins and outs of Medicare.

If any of these statements sound familiar to you, you’ve come to the right place:

  • You have been bombarded by information
  • You don’t know where to turn
  • You have experienced rate increases in the past
  • You want to know there’s someone you can call for answers, any time you need to
  • You want total coverage advice, not just a quote

We work with your best interest in mind, so while the decision will always be up to you, you’ll be empowered with knowledge that you can really understand and get behind.

At Medicare Allies, you aren’t just another transaction or a number in a system. You are an individual, and we will continue to develop a relationship with you and be there for you when you need us in the future.


On behalf of John, Jeff, and the entire family behind-the-scenes, we welcome you to Medicare Allies with open arms and would count it a joy to serve you.
