Zoom Workshops


with jess joseph
Board Certified Patient Advocate

This 60 minute workshop focuses on three kinds of coverage people on Medicare can change during Medicare’s Open Enrollment Period, October 15 through December 7.

Medicare Advantage or Original Medicare: Working with Medicare’s official handbook Medicare & You, we fill in missing information and correct biases.

Medicare Supplements (Medigap):New York is one of only four states that allow you to buy or change a Medigap plan any time you want with just a 2 to 6 month waiting period for preexisting conditions. We show you how to save money using New York State online Medigap page.

Medicare Part D prescription drug plans:We show how to use the Plan Finder tool at medicare.gov to find the lowest cost plan depending on the medications you take.



Medicare 212 is different from other presentations

We focus on strategies, not rules. Medicare has many rules which you can look up in a book or online. We focus on strategies to save money and get better care that you won’t find anywhere else.

We focus on New York City. Most organizations cover rules that are the same in all 50 states and overlook ways to save money with New York State’s unique Medicare laws.

We use our experience as a Board Certified Patient Advocate to integrate medical concerns into insurance decisions.

We are 100% unbiased.We take no commissions or fees from insurance companies.
