Medicare Advantage vs. Medigap: Which plan is right for your clients? – Joanne Giardini-Russell and Cameron Giardini – Learn more
When it is time to sign up for Medicare, your clients are faced with two seemingly simple options: should I choose a Medicare Advantage plan or a Medigap contract?
This single decision is perhaps the most complex and impactful one that a Medicare beneficiary will make. Choosing between Medigap and Medicare Advantage plans drastically changes what retirees will spend in terms of out-of-pocket health costs during retirement.
This webinar is designed to help advisors understand the pros and cons of both to help clients enrolling in Medicare make an informed decision.
In this one-hour session “Medicare Advantage vs. Medigap: Which plan is right for your clients?”, you will:
- Learn the differences between the two main products that supplement Medicare;
- Understand how to critically look at Medicare insurance products to make sure they meet the unique needs of each client;
- More accurately assess total health coverage spending during retirement;
- Understand how pre-existing conditions are addressed in each Medicare supplement option.

Joanne Giardini-Russell, Owner, Boomer Health Group
Joanne has been heard on WJR Radio, seen on WDIV’s Live in the D, BenefitsPro Expo, PlanStronger TV and more. She routinely leads Medicare classes for financial advisors, CPAs and the public. Joanne Giardini-Russell is a Medicare Guru and owner of Boomer Health Group, an independent provider of Medicare products nationally. Boomer currently has seven agents that work in Medicare-land each and every day.
Having spent years in the financial services and insurance industries, she recognized an enormous and unfilled niche. Namely, the lack of quality education and assistance in product selection in the extremely confusing space called Medicare.
In addition to holding client consultations daily, Joanne is often found teaching financial advisor firms, property and casualty agencies, group insurance providers and human resource professionals about the ins and outs of Medicare. She is also available for speaking engagements for organizations.
Joanne holds licenses in property, casualty, life and health in the State of Michigan. Additional health licenses are maintained in many states across the US. Joanne lives in Howell, MI with her five children and husband, Jeff.
Cameron Giardini, Boomer Health Group
Cameron graduated from Central Michigan University with a biochemistry degree and the hopes of becoming a Doctor. After a long and grueling week of almost studying for the MCAT, he decided that ten more years of school and piles of insurance paperwork weren’t for him.
So, naturally, instead of billing insurance, he decided to start selling it, right? This is when he entered the Medicare/senior market and quickly realized that so many people needed help and, more importantly, wanted help.
After several years in the industry he decided to join family members in launching Boomer Health Group. The company’s mission is pretty simple: to educate consumers and stop the prevalent misinformation found throughout the market. It’s maddening and avoidable.
