just here to help them make an
informed decision.”
Wells gives the example of two
carriers that have different formu-

go over a person’s medications,
we can see which carrier covers
those medications as it can mean
a difference of hundreds of dol-
lars a month,” he says. “They may
also choose a plan depending on
the access they want to specific
doctors.
“Most people try to take this on
themselves and it becomes over-
whelming,” Wells adds. “That’s
why we take the time to explain
how everything works. We en-
courage anyone with questions/
concerns to contact a broker.”
