Happy Senior Citizens Day

Authored by Bukaty Companies on August 21, 2018

Help available for seniors needing coverage

Originally observed on August 14 - the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law – President Ronald Reagan proclaimed August 21 as National Senior Citizens Day in 1988. Since that time, this has been a day set aside to support, honor and show appreciation to our seniors. The holiday is more relevant than ever, as the over-65 population is the fastest-growing demographic in the country, with about 10,000 Americans reaching the milestone each day.

There are various events and activities being held today to raise awareness of supporting older people and recognizing their achievements. Many individuals spend this day volunteering or spending time with seniors they love.

At Bukaty Companies, we’re focused on helping seniors in our community every day by providing quality Medicare options at the most affordable price. We created our Life Transitions enrollment service specifically to help both retired and working adults who are Medicare eligible to evaluate carrier, plan and cost options, including

  • Medicare Parts A & B,
  • Medicare Advantage,
  • Medicare Part D (Rx coverage), and
  • Medicare Supplements.

If you or a senior you know is interested in Life Transitions, call 913.222.5520 today.

Open enrollment is right around the corner

Medicare open enrollment is October 15 – December 7. Starting in early October, individuals 65 and over can review their options for coverage beginning January 2019. We know selecting the best insurance plan can be a daunting task. Our enrollment specialists are AHIP- and product-certified to advise seniors on their options, so they can secure the best coverage to meet their needs.

Do you know a senior in need of affordable and quality health coverage? Call us at 913-333-3380 to speak with an enrollment specialist.
