  • Don & Romona Kelly

    Age: 73

    I would like to thank The Benefit Link, especially Diana, Charlotte and Jerry, for all of the time and energy that has been initiated on our behalf. Without these wonderful folks, we would still be running around in a fog.

    I’ve never met Diana, Charlotte, or Jerry in person, but feel as though they are true friends. I tell all my Nebraska friends and acquaintances to contact Benefit Link for insurance information, because I know they will be given the straight scoop.

    God bless and thank you all at Benefit Link.

    With great respect to The Benefit Link, especially, Stewart and Jessica. I‘m so grateful for their care and guidance regarding my Medicare Part D. My medicine was not life threatening, but it is essential to my well-being. It was through them that I was able to alter my plan so that I could maximize my benefits for economical and physical reasons. I feel so blessed that they took my situation in their hands and assisted me through this year. The Benefit Link will be helping me for many years to come. I was just the “Kid Next Door” and wasn’t knowledgeable about how this all works. They came to my rescue, called, and followed through, which is more than many people will do.

    I recommend them to anyone who needs a true friend looking out for their best interest.

  • Ken Day

    Age: 66

    When the time for Medicare approaches, we receive a deluge of solicitations from Medicare Supplement insurance carriers. They are happy to point out that selecting a plan is easy, since the coverage really is limited by law to just a few plans, designated by a single letter. I selected plan G, and so all that was left was to select a stable company with a good rate. So easy. Among all the other issues with retirement, this one seemed straightforward and I thought I was done.

    I met Diana Scothorn of The Benefit Link, who asked me about my Medicare Supplement decision. I answered, and it was clear to me from her response that my decision had been made without knowledge of another critical factor. So I called the Benefit Link to learn more.

  • Mildred Ryder

    Age: 81

    I was always grateful I had good insurance for myself and my two children while working at Vought for 43 years. When I retired and my insurance continued it paid 80% and I paid the remaining 20%.

    Our company did some research and found a much better program for us retirees. I was introduced to “The Benefit Link” and was truly amazed at how much better the insurance coverage is.

    I was very frightened with the changes but soon found out it really is to our BENEFIT. Thanks to the wonderful people at “The Benefit Link” for all the personal care and support.

  • Ed Rhoads

    Age: 69

    I have purchased my medical Insurance through The Benefit Link for the past four years. Thank God I followed this path because it has made a big difference in my life. In the past two years I have had back surgery, both shoulders replaced, both knees replaced, and many hours of physical therapy.

    During this time I have not had to pay any out of pocket money. Medicare and my supplemental insurance paid the bill for everything.

    The insurance The Benefit Link obtained allowed me the choice of any Doctor I wanted. As a result I was able to access the best Doctors in the orthopedic field. Consequently I am living a pain free life.

    For the best insurance you can buy I would recommend the use of the Benefit Link. Their courteous, friendly agents will assist in help to find a plan that will work for you.

  • Carolyn Stewart

    Age: 75

    At 73 years old I was suddenly dropped from my medical insurance. I was lucky to get in touch with the Benefit Link and Diana and Derek. They spent much time with me on the phone. I followed their instructions that I would need for the future. When I have had questions and called and their representatives return in a timely manner and answer questions in a timely manner.

    I thank Diana, Derek, Charlotte and Patti for their time and effort on my behalf.

  • Armando Sanchez

    Age: 65

    I would like to thank The Benefit Link company for a job well done on my behalf. Company representative, Brennan Jackson went above and beyond my expectations on helping me get the right supplemental plan to complement my Medicare coverage. Brennan was very thorough in explaining in detail what plan would best serve my needs. I would encourage anyone looking for help in understanding the complex Medicare coverage system to visit with the folks at The Benefit Link.

    Thanks to Benefit Link, my family and I have peace of mind and know that we are in good hands.

  • Kathy Vander Gast

    Age: 67

    Two years ago when it was necessary to choose my provider for Medicare, I was deluged with offers from all over the country. One of the offers was from The Benefit Link Inc., in Texas.

    Maybe it was from divine intervention. Diana and Charlotte were so helpful in expaining all the possibilities when decisions needed to be made. Now, after two years, I needed some guidance in switching one of my plans for the most economical to fit my needs. I called The Benefit Line Inc. for help and Diana was right there.

    When such important and confusing decisions need to be made about Medicare options, The Benefit Link Inc. is not only helpful but trustworthy. I would recommend this company all over the United States.

  • Mary Alice Morgan

    Age: 66

    My name is Mary Alice Morgan and I am 66.For any of you who are 65 or older and on Medicare, this is for you or someone you know who may benefit from this. The Benefit Link is excellent. When I had my spinal fusion, they paid all of the hospital bill, my time in the hospital for rehab, and when I go to the doctor I walk in and walk out. The people are wonderful (Derek, Diana, Jerry, and Charlotte are some we have talked to) We love them. They are Christian and very caring people. Michael is so excited because he will join the same plan which I have in August. I can vouch that this company and what it stands for. The Benefit Link gives exceptional help in finding what you need. I would recommend them to anyone.
