Jess is a gem! He is an expert on the intricacies of the Medicare system and helped me navigate a gnarly situation with my Medicare application process. The application was stuck between Medicare offices and Jess knew who I could contact to ease the logjam. I can not find words to express my extreme appreciation and admiration for Jess\’ knowledge and generosity.

Notwithstanding being a retired attorney, I was overwhelmed by the options presented by Medicare. Luckily someone suggested Jess Joseph . All problems quickly resolved.

Alan Bandler | May 19, 2020

I like to think of myself as someone who is good at evaluating various options and making the best decision for my specific situation. However, I have discovered that Medicare can be very complicated. Fortunately, with the expert help of Jess Joseph, I was able to find much better medicare supplement and drug plans and save myself $1500 annually! Wow. Jess was knowledgeable, articulate, and patient in this process. I highly recommend him.

Jess Joseph is a knowledgeable and responsive consultant. Jess provided accurate, clear, and unbiased information regarding my options for supplemental insurance and he answered all of my questions fully. His expertise is a wonderful resource for anyone who would like professional advice on Medicare.

Jess Joseph is an excellent patient advocate. Not only is he enormously experienced and knowledgeable, but he has infinite patience. He really knows how to navigate this very confusing Medicare insurance nightmare. Not only did he make the process easier, but he also helped me pick the most economical plan for my complicated needs. I would recommend him highly.

Sherman Samalin | February 1, 2019

Jess was able to parse a complicated system for me, and without telling me what to do, gave me the tools to make informed choices. His patience is only surpassed by his knowledge – highly recommended!

Philippe Desloovere | April 1, 2018

As a lawyer, I have done some very complicated deals but I was baffled by Medicare and didn’t have the time or the patience on my own to figure out all of the different plans available to me and the most cost effective option for me. Jess took the time to get to know me as an individual and my unique needs and concerns. He answered all of my questions clearly and patiently, and, when we were done, I was confident that I had the best plan that saved me the most money– almost a thousand dollars in my first year compared to the plan others recommended. And he helped me with my daughter’s’ well.”

Mitchell Pines | November 14, 2017

As a geriatric social worker, I have referred many clients to Jess, all of whom have been extremely satisfied. Once I reached Medicare age myself this summer, I benefitted personally from his range of knowledge and delightful personality!

Mr. Joseph is very knowledgeable about the “ins & outs” of Medicare. When I had to change insurers his advice saved me
almost $1000. He replies to my questions & concerns with sensitivity.

Sam Weiskopf | November 5, 2017

Jess has been incredibly helpful and I would recommend him to anyone navigating the challenging healthcare system. He is able to find and synthesize relevant information and then communicate it in a calm, organized, clear manner. He’s a consummate researcher but also has a lot of warmth and compassion. I feel reassured when working with him.

DBF | November 5, 2017

Jess was so knowledgeable and helpful with every question I had about Medicare. He is patient and understanding of all concerns. I recommend him highly. If I could give more than five stars, I would.
