Medicare Advisors of Alabama

Who is Medicare Advisors of Alabama?

Medicare Advisors of Alabama, LLC is an insurance agency based in Birmingham, Alabama. We’re a group of local, kind-hearted, and knowledgeable licensed insurance agents with decades of experience helping Alabamians with Medicare.

We are proud members of the Alabama Health Guidance team and together our goal is to be Alabama’s one-stop-shop Medicare resource.

We will never try to talk you into an insurance plan that you don’t need. Instead, we think of ourselves more as Medicare educators with an insurance license. We’ll simply look at your situation, give you honest advice, help you get enrolled into the plan of your choice, and be there for you as your needs change over the years.

How do we get paid?

Medicare Advisors of Alabama does not charge fees for consultations or advice. We are not associated with the government and do not rely on government grants for funding. Our agents do have to make a living and are appointed with many insurance carriers. If we help you enroll into an insurance plan the carrier pays that agent a commission. Our agents are independent consultants and do not work for an insurance company either. Medicare requires each insurance company to pay the same commission so there isn’t an incentive to suggest one plan over another. We are truly trying to give you the best advice possible. Many times people call us and we advise that their current plan is their best option. When that happens, all we charge is a hug and to tell everyone you know that we gave you good and honest advice (If you don’t like hugs, a handshake would do).

Eric Smith

About the owner

Eric Smith has been helping Alabamians with Medicare for more than a decade. Over the years he has been a salaried representative for BlueCross BlueShield of Alabama, Cigna-Healthspring, and Viva Health. Eric lives by the Golden Rule and regardless of the plans he represented, he always found himself suggesting the most appropriate health insurance plan for an individual even if it wasn’t the one he represented. So in 2017, Eric decided to take a leap of faith and form Medicare Advisors of Alabama, LLC with the simple mission to become the most trusted Medicare resource in Alabama by offering honest and intelligent advice with an empathic heart.
