Hi there! I’m Ben Diman, and welcome to Prepare for Medicare. I created this place to help people get objective answers to questions about Medicare.
By night I’m Ben but by day, I work in the Medicare insurance industry and have done so for almost 20 years. Along the way, I’ve worked in operations, call centers, sales, marketing, product development, public relations, training, business development, actuarial, strategy and customer service. I guess you could say I’ve worked in just about every facet of the health insurance and specifically, Medicare health insurance field possible.
I’ve also got a few fancy degrees, a health insurance license and take many annual Medicare training classes and tests. While all of that is mandatory for me to do my “real” job, mostly it just means my family and friends (and their friends) hit me up for advice because they know I’ll cut through the fluff and get to what matters.
That’s why I started this site. The insurance choices you have, the enrollment periods – this stuff is always changing. I keep up with it, because I have to stay current with the legislation, policy and regulatory changes and overall industry trends as part of my day job (I also find it really interesting). My goal is to cut through all of the noise and hype and help decipher and clarify what it all means to YOU.
Making Medicare, simple. That’s my goal.
Have a question? I’d love to hear from you.
