The first time I walked into Home Depot I was overwhelmed. All I wanted was a hammer. What I didn’t know was, what kind of hammer I needed. Home Depot must have had 50 different kinds of hammers.
All I wanted was to drive a few nails into some lumber.
Medicare is the same way, but different.
When you turn 65 and enter into the Medicare system for the first time it can be like my venture to Home Depot. It can be very overwhelming.
Feel free to browse around our Medicare “store” where you can shop and compare plans with one click in the comfort of your home.
Home Depot knows hammers
Did you know there are claw hammers, tack hammers, ball pein hammers, cross pein hammers, club hammers, sledge hammers …………
The list goes on.
Fortunately for me there were people who knew how to help me. What kind of project am I doing? Am I handy with tools? Will there be other projects next year? How much can I afford to pay for a hammer? Do I need anything to go with my hammer, such as band-aids? Will I need an electric hammer or will a manual one work?
So many questions. Who knew that choosing a hammer would be so difficult?
The same is true with Medicare.
Choosing a Medicare plan is like picking out a hammer
When you turned 65 you probably talked to your friends about Medicare. What kind of plan did they have? Did they like it? Why did they buy it?
You also have received tons of stuff in the mail. Some from Medicare but most from insurance carriers pushing their plan.
Medicare used to be simple.
You turned 65. You went on Medicare. You picked out a supplement plan.
Now there are drug plans and Advantage plans. PPO’s, HMO’s, POS plans and more.
Let’s face it. You’re not in Kansas any more.
Too bad there’s not a Home Depot for Medicare.
No Home Depot, but you can get close
More like an Amazon for Medicare.
Georgia Medicare Plans is like shopping on Amazon for Medicare but with the personal service and expert advice you expect from a Home Depot.

You have questions. We have answers.
What is the difference in Medicare Advantage and Medicare supplement? What is a Medigap plan? Do I need a drug plan if I don’t take any medications? Which plans are accepted by my doctor? Which plans pay better than others? Which ones do not require me to file a claim? Is Medicare supplement plan F better than a Medicare Advantage plan? Do I need a supplement plan to go with my Advantage plan?
We are like Home Depot and Amazon. Personalized help and online shopping.
May I help you?
The most dreaded words in retail.
Most of the time we look away and say “No thank you, I am just looking”. Never make eye contact. If you do you know to get ready for a sales pitch.
At Georgia Medicare Plans there are no sales pitches. We don’t pester you to make an appointment. I won’t come to your home. I won’t try to sell you something you don’t need or want.
Most people that turn 65 think they are shopping for a Medicare plan.
They are wrong.
What they really need is someone that knows the Medicare system and can explain it in ways they can understand ………….. in 10 minutes or less ………….. over the phone.
You are not shopping for a plan. You are shopping for an agent. That’s me on the right, in the Chop House at Turner Field.
I am here to help.
And I won’t make you buy a hammer.
