OAKHURST — Susan Hatch is a licensed, independent insurance agent who represents all Medicare Supplement plan types offered by various companies.
She says that January 2017 will usher in quite a few almost “shocking” changes to many senior health plans that people need to know about now.
Susan will discuss these upcoming changes in a special workshop at the Oakhurst Branch Library from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016.
Because choosing a Medicare Plan can be difficult and frustrating, Hatch says she can guide people through the “Medicare maze” to help find the right plan for them.
“By performing extensive yearly Medicare Plan study comparisons, I can help people understand the confusing and drastic changes that occur every year of Medicare,” she explains.
In the workshop, participants will learn about Medicare HMO plans versus Medigap – Medicare supplements, how a person can get the best Part D drug plan for 2017, the “fake” cost of living increase and the new 2017 Part B premiums taken out of your social security checks, as well as other changes.
As a 100 percent independent agent, Hatch notes she is not controlled by any particular insurance company to steer a person into any one particular plan.
“My complete and comprehensive knowledge of Medigap and Medicare Supplement laws secures my clients’ rights and gives them the most up-to-date understanding of their benefits,” she continues.
Among the many hats she wears, Hatch is a well-known specialist in Medicare Supplemental insurance laws in California, acts as an objective senior advocate and Medicare analyst and is a talk radio guest expert on various Medicare topics. She speaks at Medicare Supplement conferences, writes for The California Broker magazine and was awarded the #1 Medicare Supplement agent in California.
The free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Oakhurst Branch Library (FOBL). It will be held in the Oakhurst Library’s Community Room at 49044 Civic Circle Dr., Oakhurst.
