Medicare Insurance Specialty Group Newsletter
Welcome to our 4th Quarter Newsletter

Annual Enrollment is here again!
October 15 -December 7th

By now you should have received your annual notice of change from your plan. If you are happy with your current plan and want to keep it, you will NOT have to do anything, your insurance will continue for 2022. NOW is a good time to call us if you have any questions @ 865-203-2040.

Please be very careful of phone solicitors! Do NOT give your information out over the phone! If you are CURIOUS about any "EXTRA", "NEW", or "BETTER" benefits do NOT change without speaking to us first! Solicitors promise you things, but don't tell you what you may lose!! We are contracted with MANY companies and can help you.

** Remember Medicare or Social Security will NEVER call you!!!**

We are happy to help your family and friends too! Just give them our phone numbers and have them call us @ 865-203-2040.

We hope to bring you valuable information and updates on Medicare and related topics. Feel free to drop us a line if you would like to see something in particular!

Be careful of the TV ads and phone solicitors!! Most of them do not have your best interest at heart. We can help see if you qualify for extra help or money back on your Part B premiums.

To get "money back" or "rebates" etc....
  • Typically goes by income
  • Or it may NOT include prescription drug coverage
  • Or copays may be MUCH higher than other plans!
  • Questions?? CALL US at 865-203-2040 or 865-228-8627
Know anyone new to Medicare or have questions?

Thanksgiving Day Fun Fact!
October 3, 1863 - President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation 
designating the last Thursday in November as Thanksgiving Day.

78 years later on December 26, 1941 President Roosevelt signed the resolution, thus establishing the fourth Thursday in November as the official Federal Thanksgiving Day holiday.
