I’ve been working with Total Benefits Solutions for many years now. Every year they run the numbers for comparison of the prescription plans available to supplement my Medicare plan. She does a fantastic job, even recommending plans that don’t work with brokers (no commission to them). (they) found health care plans for me before I went on Medicare as well. Do yourself a favor. Call them. You will be glad you did!

lquoteI found out the hard way what having the wrong coverage can truly cost. Even though I had insurance I found out later that my child’s birth was not covered and I had to pay 100% of the costs. After that I found the guys at EMA (Total Benefit Solutions Inc.) and Ed found me a plan that was not only better, the premiums were lower as well. Thanks again!
