vBBC Friday 29 October 2021 – Medicare Update w/ Eric Suhadolc

Welcome to 29 October 2021 and a Medicare healthcare update with sometime BBC Regular Eric Suhadolc.

The Medicare system of healthcare is very reasonably priced but often quite complicated and challenging to understand. Eric loves to explain the system in simple language so that clients understand their alternatives and can make sound decisions. He then researches available plans to find the most cost-effective options which includes your doctors, prescription drugs, and ancillary benefits that are important to you. Eric has been a Medicare insurance broker since he moved to the PNW seven years ago, and he represents eight of the PNW’s leading insurance carriers.

Notes from previous week’s BBC Open MIC: BBC_15October2021.

Be here like oddly familiarly virtually be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! Really.

So Invite your friends and associates to join this strangely familiar virtual-in-the-cloud event in real e-time and real e-space … and another delicious cup of vBBC!
