Medicare for the Lazy Man is about to get a lot better!
Let's say you wanted to read the definitive book for those approaching Medicare, but just couldn't muster the energy to actually turn those heavy pages. As an expert in laziness, I completely sympathize.
A Chicago based company called Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) owns the Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans in five states. I guide my clients to these plans whenever I am asked for advice.
Why? Because HCSC is an aggressive marketer. They own a substantial share of Medicare business in these states and they work to increase market share by modernizing their practices.
One of the most interesting parts of my job is snooping on my fellow Medicare advisers. With websites, blogs and podcasts, some insurance pros share their knowledge with interested parties who wish to learn necessary facts about this complicated subject.
However, rather than simplify the matter for their consumers, they often bloviate in an attempt to portray themselves as providing critically essential information.
