Maximize Value With an All-in-One Medicare Advantage Plan

With monthly premiums significantly lower than the traditional Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans, and often lower than many stand-alone Prescription Drug Plans, Medicare Advantage plans are worth a look.

Medicare Advantage (called Part C) includes Part A and Part B coverage, including emergency coverage overseas. Most Medicare Advantage plans also include Part D Prescription Drug coverage AND a variety of valuable extra benefits. Extra benefits depend on where you live and may include dental, vision, hearing, gym membership, transportation assistance, and more.

Every Fall (Oct 15 to Dec 7), Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan on a 12-month trial basis or switch to a different Medicare Advantage plan if they already have one. If you have recently moved to a new county or state, are losing group health insurance benefits, qualified for Low-income subsidy/Medi-Cal, as you or your spouse retire, give us a call us to learn whether one of Medicare's Special Election Periods applies to you!

Maximize Flexibility With a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan

For a few dollars more, a Medicare Supplement plan (also known as "Medigap") is designed to help pay for some of your out-of-pocket health expenses not paid by Medicare. With a Medicare Supplement Insurance plan, you still have Original Medicare for Parts A and B coverage. A variety of standard plans are available. Together, our agents represent the top Medicare Supplement insurance companies in America.

With a Medicare Supplement plan, you'll have the flexibility to choose any Medicare-approved doctor or hospital, and your coverage travels with you nationwide. Part D Prescription Drug coverage must be purchased separately.

In California, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to switch Medigap plans every year around their birthday. If you are new to California, have moved to an area where your Medigap plan is not accepted, or are approaching your birthday, and would like a quote, give us a call!

48% (3,025,620) of Medicare beneficiaries in California were enrolled in Medicare Advantage in 2021.

Maximize Savings With a Prescription Drug Plan Review

Original Medicare doesn't include prescription drug coverage. You can purchase a Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) separately from a private insurance company, as part of a Medicare Advantage plan, or in addition to a Medicare Supplement Insurance plan. In 2022, there are 25 Prescription Drug plans available in California that work in conjunction with your preferred pharmacy and some that are specially designed for individuals with chronic conditions. Even if you don't use prescriptions at all when you retire, there are reasons ($$) why you may still want to enroll in a bare bones Prescription Drug Plan when you first become eligible. Let us help you save money on prescriptions, or find solutions to avoid pitfalls and late enrollment penalties!

Get Started Today in Three Simple Steps

Talk to the Same Person Every Time with NetCare California

You don't have to make Medicare decisions by yourself. Nor do you have to navigate complex websites to ensure you enroll in the Medicare insurance plan you fully understand and best fits your needs. Because basic Medicare from the Federal government does not pay for all medical costs, nor does it pay for prescription drugs, dental care, hearing exams and hearing aids, eye exams, eyeglasses and contacts, transportation to appointments, etc., many people need help planning how to pay for the costs that federal Medicare does not cover. NetCare California is an independent broker offering multiple private insurance plans. NetCare California exists to help you understand and obtain the additional coverage that is right for you. Our consultation services are absolutely free and our enrollment assistance incurs no additional costs.

You should probably never enroll in an insurance plan with someone you have never met who calls you on the phone. Unless you are already that insurance company's client, it is illegal for them to call you. Still, many bots and telesales agents will call you, and live agents like Alan and DeeAnn often have to unravel their mess!

If you have recently enrolled in a Medicare insurance plan with someone you have never met and then never heard from again, or suddenly receiving bills that do not make sense to you, feel free to call us and we will help you take the next steps to make sure everything is okay.

Alan Parkman is the Agent You Need to Make Applying for Medicare Easier

As a jack of many trades, former municipal planner and father of 7 adult children, I have a practical nature and the experience to solve many health, budget and logistical problems. Spirituality, healing, teaching, permaculture and landscape design have been constant themes in my adult life. As a descendant of poets, pilgrims, pioneers, one published historian, and a few notable landowners, I have a knack for research and analysis that is particularly useful in evaluating the many plan options available to supplement one's Medicare and the patience to extract information and achieve positive outcomes from government, video conference and insurance company websites.

I represent only strong insurance companies and dedicate my analytic efforts and tailored recommendations to my clients' specific needs.

I appreciate your trust and welcome your call.
