Our goal at MediGap Advisors is to help you save as much money as possible — not only on insurance premiums, but in other aspects of your life. While we all receive stacks of “special offers” and “extra discount” junk mail, our team has researched to find real money-savers that are too good not to share with you.
Here are a few suggestions to help you save even more money, which you can spend on other more important things, like vacation, entertainment, grandkids or to just put away for a rainy day:
Prescription Discount Card. Even with a Medicare Part D prescription plan or Medicare Advantage plan, you could still experience gaps in your prescription coverage. That’s why MediGap Advisors offers visitors to our website a free prescription discount card.
Lab Fee Discounts. There may be times when your physician needs to order labs that aren’t covered by Medicare. We’ve found tremendous discounts with DirectLabs, which truly offers exceptional special lab discounts. In fact, I personally use this service and recently reduced my comprehensive wellness-testing bill from $565 to only $97!
SilverSneakers Program. If you routinely go to the gym, I would first like to commend you for maintaining your health! If you have a Medicare supplement plan, be sure to check out our website to see if your plan includes the free SilverSneakers benefit in its policy. You just might be able to get rid of that monthly gym membership fee!
Bill Negotiation Services. When you get your medical bills in the mail, it’s likely you simply pay them without asking any questions. I’m about to change all of that! With a bill negotiation service, you can submit any bill over $200 with the potential to significantly reduce your out-of-pocket cost. One of our very own Personal Advisors was able to reduce his son’s medical bill from $801.50 to only $280.52.

These are just a few tips to get you started. You can find an array of other money-saving tools (including identity-theft protection, pet insurance, and much more) on our website. But don’t wait too long – the sooner you check these out, the sooner you start saving.
