Lifetime and Seniors

Hi folks!
I was attending an agent meeting when I a colleague stopped over to tell me that Lifetime will be limiting the hours seniors on fitness programs like Silver Sneakers, Renew Active and OnePass can attend.

If you are concerned about this, give Lifetime a call, it’s their policy and decision.

Let me know what they say!


Where in the world…..

With people traveling more now, I started asking people if they’d bring some of our stuff with them and get a handshot (or the braver ones can show their face) holding our stuff in front of something where they are. Here’s the latest from Scottland!


Medicare Premiums and Deductibles

Happy October!

I was driving in to the office today and the colors are really starting to pop! This my favorite time of the year!

It’s also my busiest season as it’s open enrollment for so many different plans, like Medicare, group insurance and individual health plans.

Medicare has come out with their numbers for 2023.

To find out their Part B premiums, deductibles, copays and coinsurance, click HERE

Of course, if you have any questions about how all that works, please give me a call at 952-295-3830, our Medicare Member line.

Thanks for reading to the end!


Recording calls…..more thoughts….

Happy Monday morning the 19th of September, getting close to what my wife calls my Accountant time of the year. Accountants turn off their lives for a few months of intense work till all hours. We here at Leverty Insurance Strategies have a similar time of the year where work is intense and sometimes some very long days.

I’ve said before, the best part of this time of the year is getting to reconnect with customers. The hard part is that it can become a conveyor line as everyone’s time to chose and review is all crammed into one two to three month period. Forgive me if I am slower to getting back to you.

So, here’s my latest thoughts on call recording. I’ve asked my phone company to record all calls and begin by welcoming callers with the two disclaimers I’m required to say before connecting with me. My agency that I write a lot of my business with has a new program that will start recording calls from the initial start of the call, including the disclaimer. The upside is the full call, with disclaimer, is recorded. The downside is the calls need to go to a different phone number. The new number for Medicare people to call is 952-295-3830.

We hope this works perfectly so we’re starting it right away.
