Eligibility Services

Your employees have options after age 65.

Brown & Brown Absence Services Group has a distinctive Eligibility Services offering designed to help employers manage growing costs of healthcare coverage. 

We work with employers to help eligible employees understand the process of choosing an ideal Medicare plan that meets their individual medical and financial needs.

Aging Workforce

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that, by 2024, 13 million people age 65 and older will still be working, and the number of workers ages 65 to 74 will swell by 55 percent in 10 years.

Medicare Myths

Many employees may believe the myth that Medicare is not quality coverage. We help to educate your employees on the benefits of Medicare, and enroll them in policies suited to their needs.
