Does The Corvallis Clinic Have Opportunities for Me To Speak With Someone About My Options?
Yes! Coverage options can vary widely, depending on insurance plans and eligibility. Therefore, we invite you to talk directly with a Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance (SHIBA) representative or an Insurance Broker from MG Insurance directly, and will have several upcoming opportunities to do so. These representatives can provide you with information on a wide range of plans and set up an appointment for you to talk with them one-on-one.
We are partnering with MG Insurance Services to provide FREE one-on-one Medicare consultations and sign-ups. No pressure is involved with these consultations – we want you to find what works best for you! The representatives at MG Insurance Services can help you do that. Their goal is to build a long-term relationship with you and to provide you with personalized Medicare resources for years to come.
Whether you need to meet them in the comfort of your own home, or elsewhere, they are very flexible and can go anywhere you need them in Oregon. MG Insurance Services has access to all major insurance carriers, meaning they will never “push” you toward one plan or another! They will always seek out the best options for your unique needs and can help you make an educated decision.
Our hope is that you experience the same longevity and trust with MG Insurance representatives as you do with your long-term primary care provider at The Corvallis Clinic. The mutual belief in the importance of these qualities is why we have partnered with MG Insurance Services. They have been serving Medicare patients since 1985 and many of those patients have leaned on them for decades. The level of excellence they provide is what we desire for our patients.
