MEDICARE SERVICES FOR EMPLOYERS AND RETIRING EMPLOYEES
Free Advisory Services for Employers and Retirees on Healthcare Coverage Options
With employees working past 65 more frequently, HR personnel are fielding more questions from Medicare-eligible employees about the benefits and costs of employer-based healthcare coverage vs. Medicare. However, advising retirees on the pros and cons of each plan option according to their specific situation is daunting, time consuming, risky, and often something that employers are ill-equipped to do.
This leaves employees in a precarious place. Retirees at this crossroads are typically evaluating three different options – group healthcare coverage, COBRA, and Medicare. Selecting the wrong option can lead to gaps in healthcare coverage for the employee and potentially their family, short- and long-term financial repercussions, and a lack of clarity on benefits. In addition, timeliness of support and good information is critical.
Most HR professionals have the help of group insurance advisors who can quickly answer questions related to employer-sponsored plans, but when retiring employees ask questions about Medicare or comparison of coverage options, employers rarely have the same go-to resource. That’s where on-call Medicare answers make a big difference for the HR staff.
Medicare Resources for Employers
Over half of Medicare beneficiaries report that Medicare is confusing, and that can certainly be true. However, our Medicare Solutions for Retiring Employees (MSRE) program empowers employees to feel confident in the healthcare coverage option they select. We work as the employer’s go-to resource to help employees compare coverage options through the lens of their personal circumstances and needs. Timely evaluation of costs and benefits across all their options eliminates confusion, delayed enrollments, coverage gaps, and costly long-term penalties.
These Medicare advisory and enrollment services are provided to the employer and to the retiring employee free of cost. Griset Medicare Solutions is compensated by a Medicare plan following a retiree’s choice to enroll in a plan.
Here’s how MSRE works:
- As the on-call resource for the employer’s HR staff, Griset Medicare Solutions (GMS) immediately responds to referrals made by staff introducing employees who have questions about Medicare coverage options and enrollment details.
- GMS connects with the employee to identify the questions and provide answers.
- Should the employee request assistance with personalized Medicare planning, GMS will do the necessary research for recommending plan options that match the employee’s retirement priorities.
- Ongoing online resources for the retiring employee are provided through a branded page developed by GMS for year-after-year review of the annual changes in Medicare plans.
- When plan changes require coverage modifications, GMS provide plan options and assists with new enrollments.

Dan asked lots of questions to be sure he could recommend the best plan for us. He was very thorough in checking the medications that we take and being sure that our proposed plans would have the lowest out-of-pocket costs. Whenever we contact Dan about our insurance coverage he gets back to us quickly. We’re happy with our Medicare plans and Dan’s annual reviews.

When I needed a drug plan to go with my Supplement coverage, Dan found a plan at an affordable price. He made the enrollment process easy and, as promised, reviewed my coverage a year later during the annual enrollment period. It’s good to have an agent who works for me, not an insurance company.
– Fidel G. –
My experience with Dan has been nothing but the best. I told him I needed to have good PPO coverage but at a lower premium. I am so pleased with my coverage and savings of $130.00 per month. Excellent service…..he really cares
– Jan S. –
Because of rising premiums, Dan helped me transition from a Supplement plan to Medicare Advantage. He helped me find a great health plan that is meeting my needs and saving me money. I appreciate his annual review, too.
– Kay M. –
I originally enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan by responding to an advertisement. When Dan explained the advantage of having a personal agent, I asked him to review my Medicare coverage. After reviewing all of the plans in my area, he recommended a plan with better benefits and no increase in cost. This taught me a lesson: it’s better to have an independent agent on my side who can enroll me in the plan that fits my needs.
– Ronny M. –
After 45 years with PPO providers, Dan was a big help in my transition into Medicare coverage. He explained the alternatives and enrolled me in a Supplement plan and drug plan that fit my needs. His solution significantly reduced insurance costs and provided a superior level of coverage. After the first policy year, Dan reviewed my plans and recommended a new insurance option that gave me better coverage and further reduced costs. I appreciate the way he is looking out for my best interests!
– Bob B. –
Dan was recommended to us and we’re glad we met. He brought to our attention a new Medicare Supplement plan that improved on the benefits of the plan we had. He explained those benefits clearly and we’ve been satisfied with the change. We’re glad someone watches out for ways to improve our coverage!

I quickly found out that there are important choices to be made about all aspects of the Medicare program. Supplemental insurance, timing, qualifying issues require an experienced hand to avoid costly errors or bad choices. Dan Griset is immersed in the details of these programs and took care of everything. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
