I am a third-generation Phoenician and an independent insurance agent.
I have been in the insurance business all my life. I grew up in a family where my father owned Haldiman Insurance Agency. I’ve worked a several different insurance companies specializing in health insurance and now specifically Medicare. During Medicare Open Enrollment, you may have seen doing meetings at Native Grill or Copper Sky over the past five years.
I have lived in the same home in the Villages for the past 12 years. I started work in Medicare after moving to Maricopa and would love to keep in informed about all the updates.
Medicare had a big change this year. They have actually added another Open Enrollment, which started Jan. 1 and ends March 31. If you are already a Medicare Advantage plan member, you may disenroll from your current plan and switch to a different Medicare Advantage plan, of which there are many.
Medicaid also had a big change this year. Pinal County has added United Healthcare. I can help clients find out if they are eligible and what programs are available. A savings account or pension are disqualifying, for instance, but a house and car are not.
I love helping people. I host free Medicaid and Medicare seminars. I work very closely with military veterans in Medicare and Medicaid to make sure they are receiving the services they deserve.
I am here to help and encourage my Medicare clients through education. Medicare is complicated, and finding a plan that is right for each individual is so much harder.
