Bridlewood Now Expanding Product Line

Bridlewood is pleased to announce our partnership with Life Answers Financial Group

LifeAnswers brings a combined 100 years of industry experience, next generation technology, along with a core group of top life insurance carriers for life insurance and annuity products for its members, for every stage of a customer’s financial needs.

Life Insurance: How many people enter retirement with little or no life insurance to cover expenses and replace income once a loved one has passed? How many folks have lost their life insurance once they came off their group coverage? We can help.

Annuities: The number one fear seniors have is outliving their money. An Annuity is a contract with an insurance company that can, guarantee Growth, guarantee Income and can guarantee No Loss of Principal when the market takes a downturn.

Critical Illness: If you are diagnosed with a qualifying cancer or illness, a policy provides a lump sum cash benefit payment that can be used to help pay for medical treatment, living expenses, or any other expenses you see encounter due to this illness.

Final Expense: Preparing for a funeral can be an exhausting burden for your family, but making sure you have the financial resource to cover the cost of a burial and funeral are extremely important for personal estate planning. Whether you've been to a funeral before or you've experienced the loss of a loved one, it is important to know that final expense insurance can be depended on to provide a financial safety net to cover these costs.

Why this is So Important:

“Hello Jeff, I want to thank you for all your help. I’m glad there are still people like you that are willing to go the extra mile to help someone. What I have lived through the past 10 months (since my husband went to heaven) has been rough but things are getting better. You never understand a person’s troubles until you have to face it your-self. The life insurance plans you did for us a few years ago has helped me tremendously, because of the unexpected expenses and the loss of Michael’s income. Every penny helps me these days, and I appreciate everything you did for us.”

Personal Note: Our customers are our “family” and we must protect them as we would our own. Since Bridlewood is the leader in Medicare insurance in San Diego, we have a moral responsibility to protect our “family” from whatever life throws at them.

Bridlewood Members Get Discounted Hearing Aids


Hearing loss is one of the most chronic conditions in seniors in the US. It affects more than nine million Americans between the ages of 45 and 64. Three out of five seniors, and 6 out of 7 middle-aged Americans with hearing loss, do not use hearing aids. There are many reasons people will not get tested or wear hearing aids: denial that there is a problem, vanity, and ex-pense are just a few.

In a recent John Hopkins study, it was determined that if a person has mild hearing loss they have 2 times the risk of developing dementia. With moderate hearing loss that risk rises to 3 times, and with severe hearing loss they have 5 times the risk!

The average hearing aid costs $2,000 per device, or $4,000 a pair. This is most often the main reason people will not get them. Because Bridlewood is concerned with all aspects of our client’s health, we have negotiated with a terrific local audiologist to bring special pricing and service to our members. Dr. Ken Podlenski is a doctor of audiology (AuD), with over 20 years serving the San Diego area. His pricing includes the hearing aid devices, follow-up visits for fine-tuning, hearing tests and walk-in services for 3 years (at no additional cost).

The “Bridlewood Prices” are as follows:

* Behind the Ear Hearing Aids—$799/device or $1,598/set.
* Power Hearing Aids—$879/device or $1,758/set.
* Custom Hearing Aids—$999/device or $1,998/set.

If you have an interest in learning more about the hearing aids, or would like to schedule an appointment, please call Dr. Ken Podlenski at (858) 674-1910. They are located in the Carmel Mountain Ranch area at: 12396 World Trade Drive, Suite 205.

And be sure to tell him you are a Bridlewood Member!
