Good afternoon Merrilynne,

I'm Doug, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

You can apply for Medicare online at the following site: https://www.ssa.gov/medicare/apply.html

As for a supplement program, you will need to either obtain that from Medicare or from a private Medicare Supplement company like Humana ( https://www.humana.com/medicare/ ) or one of the many other companies that sell Medicare supplement plans.

Here is a link to help you locate the Medicare supplement plan that will be best for you: https://www.medicare.gov/supplement-other-insurance/

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. Please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am credited for assisting you.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,

Doug

Good evening,

Do you have any additional questions that you would like me to address for you?

In case you would like a phone call to further discuss these issues you have raised, I will make that offer to you. You are certainly not obligated to accept a call offer, but many people do find it helpful for clarification purposes, as well as to allow them to ask additional questions.

If I have provided you with the information you asked for, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?

Thanks in advance,

Doug
