Our health insurance team, Mike Newsom and Crystal Labbe, would like to be a resource to you as your employees turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare, or as they leave prior to turning 65 but with little to no understanding of their health insurance options after their departure.
There will now be another Marketplace Special Enrollment Period on the way, recently announced by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This period would be for eligible for families and individuals who are now losing their coverage due to Unwinding. You can find more information about Unwinding after the COVID crisis by clicking here.
In the prior tax year, you purchased a health policy. The policy has a full price based on each family members’ age and zip code. Then, an Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) based on your report of estimated household income for that year, reduces the price, sometimes by 90% or more, ensuring that your plan is affordable (and costs less than 9.5% of your income).
We know inflation is hurting our clients–it’s hurting us as individuals, as well. As things rise, premiums may also rise. If the cost concerns you, please make sure you are reaching out to your trusted insurance agent here at Wheelers Insurance so we can get you quoted with other carriers. We may be able to find you a better price.
Did you score the latest PS5 as a Christmas gift? Maybe you got a new TV to watch all of your reality TV shows on. Or you could have even got a new coffee machine. All of these valuable items can be insured so you can protect them.
If your fridge looks anything like all of ours does at Wheelers, then it’s probably extremely empty. This is what happens when a Maine storm comes in and shuts your power off for days. It can financially hurt to restock your fridge. That’s where your home insurance can step in.
The recent storm we had did not go easy on us. As hundreds of houses are still without power in Maine, it is important to be cautious of all the hard snow and ice that is currently compacted to your roof.
Our amazing Medicare and Health Insurance agents, Mike and Crystal, have been working around the clock to ensure hundreds and hundreds of our clients are provided with the most adequate and affordable health care coverage.
Not all heroes wear capes, in fact, some wear leashes. This is extremely apparent to Christy Gardner, US Army Veteran, who acquired a service dog in 2010 in regard to surviving a war related injury in 2006. Moxie was her first fur baby, companion, and a service dog who took amazing care of her. After seeing the care that Moxie gave her, Christy decided to give back and deliver this to others alike–who may not be able to get a service dog on their own. Wheelers Insurance was so happy to sit down with Christy to hear all about this amazing organization and of the heart and soul she has continued to put into it to make it flourish.
Every now and then your family may find time to sit down and look at old photos. At Wheelers, we finally decided it was time to look through all of our keepsakes and remind ourselves of the history this building and business holds. Once family owned, now an employee-owned business, there is so much life and history in our buildings and within our agency.
