By: Chris Grimmond • On: June 2, 2016

For two years, my father was on dialysis.  Those were tough years.  When I got a client on dialysis, I wanted the best for him.  Kidney dialysis is one of the pre-existing conditions that usually excludes you from a supplement.  My client had a one-time opportunity.  I was going to make sure he got it!

Leave My Medicare Supplement Alone!

By: Chris Grimmond • On: May 8, 2016

By: Chris Grimmond • On: July 27, 2015

I learned to sing the alphabet before I learned to say it, and from that humble beginning, language opened up to me.

After I acknowledged that I was nearing Medicare age, I realized I knew nothing about it so I reached out to two very informed friends. They both recommended Chris Grimmond. They praised his knowledge and helpfulness so I gave him a call. After meeting with Chris, I was 100% convinced that we would be working together. He answered all my questions and helped me understand the Medicare system. I feel confident I made the right decision to work with Chris and his team at Omaha Insurance Solutions.

When it came time for me to enroll in Medicare, I had no idea what the process was or what types of coverage to expect. Christopher at Omaha Insurance Solutions took care of all of those questions and alleviated any anxiety with the process. His patience is outstanding and is outdone only by his knowledge of the products he represents. His services cost nothing, and he advocated for the best plan to fit my specific needs. I highly recommend Omaha Insurance Solutions when looking for answers to Medicare questions.
