Experienced Medicare Agents

Bridlewood Agents are experienced Medicare consultants who will take the time to understand your unique situation and needs. If you’re turning 65 and new to Medicare or are already enrolled in a Medicare product and want to review your options for the coming year, your Bridlewood agent is there to guide you through the Medicare options available to you. It’s overwhelming for those new to Medicare; your Bridlewood agent will educate you on the many parts of Medicare, including Medicare Parts A & B, Medicare Advantage, Part-D drug plans, and Medicare Supplements.

Understanding Your Medicare Options

After giving you a basic understanding of Medicare and the options available, the first step is to conduct a thorough Medicare review with you. This process includes identifying your doctors, any specific health concerns you are dealing with, what prescription medications you are taking, travel, living in different areas of the state or country, and more. Once your agent walks you through this process, they will educate you on all the various plans available so that you can confidently choose the most appropriate program to meet your needs and budget. And because the insurance company compensates the agent, our services are offered at no cost.

    Simply put: Medicare = Gary Rothman! He is like any other angel watching over you. Working 24/7 and taking care of your personal plan even when you’re not aware. He really cares! Gary helped me through what I was expecting to be a monumental task, with ease. Efficient, professional, polite and personable. There’s no where else you need to look for help. Thanks Gary!

  • I can’t recommend Vickie Braden enough! Medicare enrollment was looming & I was feeling so overwhelmed. I found Vickie online & dropped an email. She responded quickly. Vickie immediately put my mind at ease with her friendly demeanor & expert knowledge! She really listened to my questions and concerns & went over options that were best for my individual needs.My one regret: I wish I would have called Vickie sooner! Thanks again, Vickie for all your help

    Brian McArthur at Bridlewood has an excellent depth of knowledge on Medicare/Medical/Health Insurance, and assisted me tremendously in my transition from self-insured to Medicare. Brian is patient and informative, knows the answers to your questions, and anticipates the questions you should be asking.

  • Gary Rothman is incredible! I waited too long to begin this princess of signing up and then choosing Medicare and a supplement. I knew nothing of what I was supposed to do. Thank goodness we chose Gary Rothman to guide us through this whole process! He was incredibly knowledgeable of both the process and the available products, took the time to research which plan was best for me and my prescription and medical needs, and never flinched when I lost an email, needed repeated directions, had technology problems or asked a zillion questions. After hearing from friends that felt alone throughout this process, my husband and I are so thrilled we had the direction, knowledge and support of Gary Rothman. Even Covid didn’t slow Gary down! He has been 100% responsive and we know we’re in the best hands possible. Hello 65 - I’m covered and I’m ready for you!

    To whom it my concern;Cathy Wilkerson is my Bridlewood Medicare Specialist, she signed me up for over 5 years ago. I'm pleased today as I was, when I first enrolled.I have recommended Cathy to many of my friends who needed help, not knowing what to do. They've always been pleased as well!Honestly anytime I’ve had a question regarding my healthcare, she is right there to help me and explain things so I understand and always with such a great personality.I enjoy receiving Cathy's monthly newsletters, it's always fun to read plus good information to keep me up to date on any Medicare changes.I’ve been pleased with her dedication and quick reply’s in getting back to me. I recommend her to anyone who’s uncertain about health insurance.SincerelyMary BengstonDanville Ca.

    Caitlyn Vu is my agent and she has done a fantastic job of finding the best policy at the lowest rate from a good company. She is knowledgeable and thorough, and that makesa huge difference. Also, she follows up to make sure everything is working smoothly, and she has helpful answers to questions. Glad I found her!

    Dedicated, knowledgeable, caring, professional there are many words that can be used to describe working with Sharie, however, she is more than just an agent. She genuinely cares about her clients and goes out of her way to help with all issues regarding health care even if it means making calls to the insurance companies for her clients, and helping them one-on-one through the health care maze. Sharie and Bridlewood stand head and shoulders above their peers in their commitment to their clients and their customer service. As a customer of 3 years I am looking forward to many more working with them to meet my health care needs.

  • I was referred to my insurance agent, Victoria Poilevey in 2019, a few months before I had to choose my Medicare options and an advantage or supplemental plan. I had such a great interaction with her that I referred her to some individuals and for an event of seniors looking for like advantage and supplemental options. She is a delight in which to work. She takes her clients every consideration to heart to find what works best for them. I love the monthly newsletter she sends out, packed full of information and a little personal note about her and her fur babies. I have found a kinship in Victoria and trust that she has my best interest in mind.

    Vicki was patient and so very helpful in guiding me through all the plans available to me, the ins and outs of Medicare and was always ready and willing to answer any questions I had. Since I couldn't see her in person due to Covid-19 concerns, Vicki was easy to communicate with by phone , email or virtual meeting. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me enroll in Medicare!

    Exceptional service! Top notch in every way. Sheri goes "over and above" to provide not only the products, but the knowledge to explain them in a way that makes sense. Her guidance and counsel are invaluable when the choices and actions are so important to get right the first time. This has been a wonderful experience.

  • Susan and Richard White provided timely and most excellent, absolutely correct advice with respect to the proper Medicare/Supplement insurance to cover a necessary kidney transplant. Aren't likely to be two better advisors for such needs.
