Proper Care with Dental Insurance
Maintaining dental hygiene is very important to your overall health, but doesn’t need to be expensive. Whether you are searching just for you, your family, or a friend, we have a variety of dental insurance plans available to meet most needs and budgets. With thousands of providers in network, finding a dental insurance plan with a dentist that you feel comfortable with is just a phone call or email away.
Optional Vision Coverage
People who lack insurance coverage are twice as likely skip or delay receiving the care they need. This pertains to vision care as well. Vision benefits (available in most areas for additional premium) can be added to most dental insurance plans or purchased individually.
Does Medicare cover dental and vision services?
Medicare doesn’t cover most dental care, dental procedures, or supplies, like cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions, dentures, dental plates, or other dental devices. Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) will pay for certain dental services that you get when you’re in a hospital. Part A can pay for if you need to have emergency or complicated dental procedures, even though the dental care isn’t covered.
Essentially, Medicare wasn’t meant to cover everything. This includes dental insurance and vision coverage. However, just because it isn’t covered, doesn’t mean that you can’t protect your health, and that’s where our additional dental insurance and vision plans come in!
Medicare doesn’t cover routine eye exams (sometimes called “eye refractions”) for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers some preventive and diagnostic eye exams:
- Yearly eye exam
- Glaucoma tests
- Macular degeneration

Short Term Recovery Care and Home Health Care insurance policies are two ways you can plan for the future. We have hand-selected two policies with the goal of providing you peace of mind knowing that you will have some protection against the increased risk of the rising recovery care costs as you age.
Short Term Recovery Care
You can’t predict the future, but you can prepare for it. How will you pay for the unexpected accident or illness that requires a short stay in a Nursing or Assisted Living Facility or for Home Health Care, Adult Day Care or Hospice Care?
Recovery Care provides peace of mind for your future, your finances, and most importantly, your independence.
Flexibility to choose how much coverage you want, how long you want the coverage to last, and how many optional benefits, such as survivorship benefits, you want to include.
Home Health Care
According to the CDC, in 2013 over 4.9 million patients received services from home health agencies. Almost 85% of those utilizing services were over the age of 65. People don’t go to nursing facilities because they want to; they go because they have to. Home Health Care insurance gives you the flexibility to utilize the type of care that can be right for you in the comfort of your own home. With the ever-increasing incidence of in-home care as a result of people being discharged from the hospital faster, this policy has become very popular. This coverage is designed to help provide care in your home instead of in a hospital or nursing home.

What is an annuity?
An annuity is a investment vehicle used to generate growth and income over a period of time. Use an annuity to create a guaranteed stream of income for your retirement. With an annuity you can defer taxes on interest earned until you withdraw money.
Who is an annuity right for?
Anyone at any age can invest in an annuity. Our clients invest in annuities when they have an existing 401k or IRA to roll over. They also invest in an annuity when looking for an account which will perform better than a low-interest savings account or CD. Investments can be made in a lump sum or multiple payments over time.
Contract Owner – This is the person who purchases the annuity contract and pays the premiums (may also be called the annuitant). There can also be more than one owner on a annuity contract.
Annuitant – The person named in the annuity contract who is scheduled to receive the annuity payments.
Beneficiary – The person who will receive the funds from the annuity in the event that the annuitant/owner dies before the funds are redeemed.
Insurance Carrier – The life insurance company that holds the annuity funds, administrates the contract and is responsible for making payments to the beneficiary.
Should I invest in an annuity?
This depends on the individual. Annuities were designed to limit the annuitant’s risk by providing a guaranteed return. An annuity can provide eliminate the fear of outliving your savings and retirement funds. They can also provide a quick source of funds for family members in the event of your death.
