Why Do a Medicare Review?

Medicare Open Enrollment typically takes place from mid-October to early December each year. During the designated enrollment period is the only time you can make changes to your Medicare plan until the next year’s open enrollment period. Each year, Medicare plans change, and sometimes the changes are dramatic. This year, there are more changes than ever, and Medicare 411 has the information and the expert advice that you need to make important changes to your plan. An annual review can ensure that you have chosen the best plan to meet your needs for the coming year, and it can even save you money. Call Medicare 411 today to meet with a trusted Medicare Expert at 815-414-9044.

Yvonne Peterson

Hi, I'm Yvonne "Chevy" Peterson I’ve worked in Rockford my entire adult life but have lived in Boone County for about a dozen years. I've spent over two decades helping thousands of seniors and their families find the perfect Assisted Living community. It might not have always been the one I represented, but it's always been my passion to look at the individual’s situation and guide them to what was best for THEM.

Recently I decided it was time to make a change and return to insurance sales with an emphasis on continuing to help seniors and those turning 65 or retiring. I will continue to follow the philosophy of doing what is best for my client, even if that means staying with your current coverage.

Navigating Medicare, Supplements, Advantage Plans, Medicaid, Drug plans, long-term care …. well, it’s all VERY confusing. For that reason I decided to work with Medicare 411 where I would have a vast wealth of resources and experience to rely on for even the most intricate situation. At Medicare 411 we consider ourselves Medicare Translators and hold the same passion of spending the time necessary to ensure an individual is getting the best plan for THEM.

If you choose to work with me, I promise:

  • To be your Medicare Translator, together finding the best policy for you even …. if that means keeping what you already have.
  • To be there, not just for the contract signing but all year through for your questions and concerns
  • To meet with you annually to ensure your policy is still the best for you
  • My services are free! You won’t pay a dime more than had you bought a policy online
