Medicare is a Big Factor to People Living Longer

People are living longer than they ever have in all of recorded history. You want to know why? Because of Medicare.

There are two reasons for this: the first one is, studies have shown that when a person becomes of Medicare age, they often get healthier because they start making better use of the medical system.

And second, Medicare is so generous that it has incentivized health providers and pharmaceutical companies to actively seek medical advances and develop new drugs and therapies that make greater longevity possible.

Medicare has been a tremendous contributor to the ability of seniors to stay active longer and to have greatly improved quality of life as a they grow older.

I remember the morning Yvonne called. She was nice, and not pushy at all, she explained things in a clear and simple way.The first year of the policy I had some very large medical bills and I was delighted with the policy I chose. Since that time she has encouraged me to call her whenever I have a question. So when a problem arose with clinic billing, I called Yvonne. She helped me to see that I had been over-billed, and then she assisted me in getting the error fixed, and the bill was reduced by several hundred dollars.
