This is also the time of the year that you’ll be inundated with TV ads, mail, and perhaps even phone calls soliciting your business. These are marketing techniques designed to convince you to change from your current insurer to the one contacting you. If you want to avoid all of that, be aware that AMAC has a Medicare department which has access to many different Medicare-related healthcare options from multiple insurers, so can help you explore what is best for your personal circumstances. AMAC’s Medicare specialists aren’t commissioned so have no goal other than helping you find healthcare coverage which suits both your medical needs and your cost objectives. You can contact AMAC’s Medicare department at www.myamacmedicare.com or call them at 1.800.334.9330.
