Our approach is straightforward, educational, comprehensive and personal and will reduce your anxiety and confusion.
We analyze each individual’s specific situation to help you decide initially if, when and how to transition into Medicare Parts A and/or B.

Next, we walk you through the entire Medicare process, answer your questions, and analyze your specific situation including health and prescription medications.

Based on your needs, preferences, and priorities we then objectively present a variety of options aimed at maximizing your coverage while minimizing your out-of-pocket costs. Once you have determined your best course of action we can facilitate your enrollment in the plans of your choice.

After your enrollment we provide unparalleled service aimed at exceeding your expectations, including advocating for you if challenges should arise with your plan. If your health needs and situation change in the future we can still assist you and help you make whatever plan alterations are necessary.

Express Scripts Smart90 Pharmacy Network — Exclusive to United American Subscribers / MDA Retiree Plan members
Smart90 is a money-saving feature of your prescription benefit. It makes it easy for you to fill prescriptions for your maintenance medications (those drugs you take regularly for ongoing conditions) at a lower cost. With Smart90, you have the option to fill a 90-day supply of your maintenance medications at a participating retail pharmacy or the Express Scripts home delivery pharmacy – but you will pay less for each 90-day supply than you would pay for three 30-day supplies at a non-preferred retail pharmacy.

Medicare and No Fault Auto Insurance Changes

According to the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS), after July 1, 2020, Michigan Medicare beneficiaries who renew or purchase a new no-fault automobile insurance policy can “opt-out” of Personal Protection Insurance (PIP) medical benefits if they wish. The beneficiary must demonstrate that they are enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B and that their spouse or any relative who resides with them in the same household has either qualified health coverage or auto insurance that includes PIP medical benefits.  LEARN MORE >>
