Book Medicare Made 123 Easy 4th Edition

Mr. Schaeffer is one of the best-selling authors on the subject of Medicare. See his book in your local library or get your own copy at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.


David P. Schaeffer , CEO

Our mission is to make selecting the most appropriate Medicare plan 123 Easy. We start with every plan available in your zip code. Not just five or ten plans, but EVERY single option available. In many cases that means 15,188 options to most folks turning 65.
Our process helps you narrow the choices to one or two plans in less that 45 minutes. You select from every company and plan offered in your zip code, not from a short list compiled by someone that does not even know your name. In our medicare planning meeting we begin with what’s most important, keeping your doctors, then we research every option available to keep your prescription drugs costs as low as possible. (Note: A Medicare planner, agent advisor or broker may not ask for your prescription drugs in helping you select a plan, you must volunteer this information.)
Next we look at the plan benefits to keep your co-pays in check. The process is designed to look at all or your options across all brands to match your needs to a plan instead of you inconveniently changing your doctors and drugs to fit into a plan.
We start with your needs, not a companies marketing plans or associations or affiliations. The end result is you will will discover a plan the most appropriately meets your needs not the other way around.
