I’m a retired insurance broker from Santa Barbara, CA.  I enrolled in Medicare the year I retired in 2016 and have loved my coverage.

I know there are lots of changes that occur each year, so I decided to write about the things I experience so you can learn from them.  This will be an easy read.  No jargon or insurance “lingo.”  I know how confusing that can be to people outside the industry.

My Brief Bio

I am married, no kids, and have a great husband who loves to entertain me and friends.  I worked for many years as an insurance agent for a variety of well-known companies, but never found the job and company that I loved.  After 25 years I decided to retire this year and enjoy the 2nd half of my life.

The process of enrolling in Medicare was confusing (I was primarily a life insurance agent), so it took a lot of effort to learn what I needed to know.  Now I love my coverage.

Purpose of Blog

In this blog, I’ll try to give you some insights into what I see as good and bad about the health insurance industry and in particular, Medicare.

If there is anything you want to know, or you just want to strike up a conversation, leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you.
