Medicare is not a "one size fits all" product and during the open enrollment period eligible Minnesotans are inundated with advertising from providers that claim to have the best coverage.
The right choice for your members depends on their doctors, providers, medications, and prescription drugs. As your partner we have the expertise on all seven providers and the process in place to make sure your member is with the provider most appropriate for them. Through this process we are saving members thousands of dollars per year while they are obtaining better coverage then they have currently.
TruLync Medicare Advisors invites every Minnesota Credit Union between now and December 31st to meet with the team to learn about partnership opportunities for the upcoming year.
Interested in signing up for 2024? Contact Kris Jacobsen, MnCUN Vice President of Business Development by email or phone at 612-244-7138.
