About the Team

Making Healthcare Planning 123 Easy is what we do!

David Schaeffer


Our mission is to make selecting the most appropriate Medicare plan 123 Easy. Always acting in your best interest, we start with every plan available in your zip code. Not just five or ten plans, but EVERY single option available. In many cases that means reviewing over 1,000 combinations of options to most folks turning 65.

Our process helps you narrow the choices to one or two plans in less that 45 minutes. You select from every company and plan offered in your zip code, not from a short list of “preferred carriers”. In our medicare planning meeting, we begin with what’s most important, keeping your doctors. Then we research every option available looking to keep your prescription drugs costs as low as possible. (Note: A licensed and certified insurance agent may not ask for your prescription drugs in helping you select a plan. You must volunteer this information under Medicare guidelines.)

We start with your needs. Our process is designed to look at all of your options across all brands. The end result is you will discover a plan that most appropriately meets your needs, not the other way around
