Many people ask, "How do I sign up and get started with Medicare in Erie County?"
Andrew Hibbard created the WNY Medicare SmartStart Program back in 2015 after working for one of the largest Medicare Health Insurance Companies nationwide (which you would know if mentioned by name). During his time as a former Medicare Industry Insider, he realized that everyone in Erie County eligible for Medicare has to fend for themselves to fill out and file their forms. There had to be a better way.
Does that sound like a struggle you're going through? How many times have you thought "I will be 65 soon, and need to do something with Medicare, but I am so confused and need help with where to start," only to find that the information the Federal Government has sent you is unhelpful and useless, and anything from the Insurance Companies is just unwanted sales solicitations for you to buy their stuff.
The problem isn't with you --- it's with the information you have.
In fact, you can sign up and get started with Medicare in just ONE HOUR! How? By having your hand held to walk you through a simple step-by-step system, not just doing the same thing other people have done and continue to do. After all, do you really want to spend your hours/days/weeks dealing with Medicare directly like everyone else?
