Getting Medicare help from our team here at Medicare Allies is completely free. We help with rejected claims, unexpected bills, miscoded doctor bills, and any questions that come up during your Medicare journey. We also do a yearly one-on-one review of your Medicare Supplement rates and your drug plan to make sure you’re getting the most value for your money.

And we don’t charge you a dime.

So, how does it work? We’re taking you behind the scenes to go over how we offer all of these services at no cost to you.

When insurance companies set their premiums, they factor in all of their expenses, including the medical bills they expect to pay, administrative costs, marketing budgets, and commissions.

Instead of hiring a bunch of sales staff and paying for salaries, travel expenses, health insurance, and 401(k)s, the insurance companies decided to pay independent agents and brokers a commission for each policy they sold.

So when we sell you a Medicare Supplement plan, for example, the insurance company pays us a commission. 

What a lot of people don’t realize is you pay the same premium whether you buy from us or directly from the insurance company. But the value you get is very different.

Calling an insurance company can take a lot of time, not to mention the headache of “Press 1 for billing” and “you’re 95th in the queue.” When you have an issue, you come to us. We’re your advocate. We’ll handle it so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Plus, we compare the benefits and prices of several Medicare plans. We check if your primary care physician and preferred hospital are in your network. We check if your prescription drugs are covered. We compare the prices and benefits of your top prescription drug plan options. We tell you what your expected annual costs will be. We help you understand your eligibility for different plans, and we answer any and all questions you have along the way.

And we do all of this at absolutely no cost to you. Another big benefit of working with us versus buying direct is we can compare prices from over 30 companies. If you buy direct, you’ll never know if another company could offer you the same plan for a lower price.

So, that’s how we are paid to help you for free! If you need Medicare help, give us a call at 833-801-7999!
