Medicare Insurance Counseling

Medicare can be confusing. We can help.

Every year we help people save thousands of dollars in prescription medication bills by simply reviewing  Part D plans during fall open enrollment. We may be able to save you money too.  

Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program (VICAP) nationally known as SHIP, provides confidential, unbiased, personalized Medicare Counseling by trained and certified consultants to anyone receiving Medicare, regardless of age.
