Susan Polk Insurance Agency, Inc. Reminds Clients of Medicare Open Enrollment

San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2014

As the summer months make way for the cooler days of autumn, the professionals at Susan Polk Insurance Agency, Inc. would like to remind seniors in San Luis Obispo County and across the state of California that now is the time to start planning for the upcoming Medicare Open Enrollment period which starts Oct. 15 and continues through Dec. 7, 2014.

There is a limited amount of time to make a decision about how to receive your Medicare, said owner Susan Polk. Every Medicare beneficiary, unless on a retiree group plan, should review his or her Medicare plan during the October through December time frame.

Medicare specialists

As Medicare specialists with years of experience assisting seniors with difficult choices, Polk and her team of insurance professionals are eager to share their knowledge. The Initial Enrollment Period, according to Polk, starts three months prior to getting Medicare which is usually the first of the month in which you turn 65, the month you get Medicare, and three months after Medicare becomes effective.

You usually get Medicare the first of the month in which you turn 65, but if you or your spouse are working, you may be able to defer enrollment into Part B until you or your spouse retires, said Polk. However, if you work for a small employer less than 100 employees you may need to enroll in Part B even if you continue group insurance as an active employee or as a spouse of an active employee.

Those who miss the Initial Enrollment Period may have to wait until the General Enrollment Period, and remain uninsured for several months just one reason why it is important to discuss plan options with a professional insurance broker at the Susan Polk Insurance Agency. Eleven standard Medicare Supplement Plans are available and offered through various independent companies.

There are different rules for different folks, said Polk, and you will feel more comfortable being guided through the maze of dates and eligibility periods by a professional insurance broker. Dont enroll if you dont have to, but dont miss the enrollment period if you do.

In addition to being a card-carrying Medicare Member, Polk has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to Medicare, having worked with Medicare plans for 26+ years. Four-year agency staff member Laurie Tonegato is the firms Customer Service Representative for Medicare in addition to being a Medicare Sales Associate with fellow staff member Cathy Fredriks.

Prescription Drug Plans and more

As with Medicare Supplement Plans, Polk, Tonegato, and Fredriks understand that navigating the many prescription drug plan (PDP) options can be a daunting task without the assistance of an insurance professional. For example, individuals insured through a group retiree program may jeopardize their plan by enrolling in a PDP.

And with 34 plans in California to choose from, you will want to enroll in the plan which is best for your situation, said Polk.

As the largest enroller in Medicare plans in San Luis Obispo County, the independent insurance brokers at Susan Polk Insurance offer Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage plans from any company which works with brokers. Currently contracted with over a dozen carriers who write Medicare Plans, they can enroll anyone into any of the 34 PDPs and they also offer Medicare Advantage plans.

A wealth of knowledge in Medicare, along with their willingness to review their Medicare plans twice a year to ensure their clients are getting the most out of their health care dollars, is what sets the professionals at the Susan Polk Insurance Agency apart from other insurance brokers in the area.

We love what we do, said Polk. We help Medicare beneficiaries all over the state of California and in seven other states as well.

More about Susan Polk

Susan Polk graduated from Pitzer College with a bachelors degree in Economics. With 43+ years of experience as a licensed agent, Polk has lent advice to San Luis Obispo County residents for the past 26+ years as the owner of Susan Polk Insurance Agency, Inc. She is a member of the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), and the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU).

Access Publishing Launches New Local Business Websites

Paso Robles, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2014

Access Publishing, a Paso Robles-based marketing and advertising company, announced the launch of several new local business websites. The new websites for Access Publishings clients include over 50 businesses and organizations in San Luis Obispo County.

The new websites were built for, among others, North County Moving of Paso Robles, Popolo Catering of San Luis Obispo, Cucina Kitchen and Baths, Paradise Limousine Co., Pismo Beach dentist Dr. Perry Patel DDS, Dr. Douglas Ng DDS, Central Coast Glass of Morro Bay, Superior Janitorial Solutions of Paso Robles, Erb Tutoring, Chilina Law Firm, Carrizo Plains Conservancy, Acme Leak Detection of Santa Barbara, Canine Tutors, San Luis Obispo solar specialists Electricraft Inc., assisted living experts Elder Placement Professionals, Fidelity Safety & Training, Nevada Advanced Pain Specialists, and Peabody and Plum Realtors of Atascadero.

Access Publishings new push into the web design business is part of its transition from traditional print to cutting-edge digital media.

Three years ago, 100-percent of our business was from selling advertising in print directories and other paper-based publications, says Scott Brennan, CEO of Access Publishing. This year our companys revenues will be almost 50-percent from our online efforts. The best news is that the top line of the balance sheet keeps growing even though print revenue has softened, he says.

While the transitioning has been a lot of work, the results have been nothing short of phenomenal, says Brennan.

Sensing the shift in business marketing budgets away from print advertising a few years ago, Brennan went back to college to earn a masters certificate in Advanced Internet Marketing from the University of San Francisco.

Armed with the latest techniques, he rolled out new services including local search engine optimization (SEO), called Access Local Search, and website design that help business rank better in Google search results.

The company also launched the Paso Robles Daily News, an online news provider for North San Luis Obispo County. The news site boasts over 2,000 daily email subscribers and 150,000 views per month. It publishes over 30 fresh articles a week in categories including top stories, crime, entertainment, wine, Templeton, Atascadero and more.

We now have over 100 local SEO clients, 50 website clients, and 50 regular advertisers on the Paso Robles Daily News, Brennan says. Im very proud of how far our team taken the company.

The successful transition comes at the hand of experienced professionals. Im grateful to Laura Brehmer, Doug Swarts, Alex Juchniewicz, Paul Shannon and Noah Cryns for helping create our Access Local Search programs, says Brennan. And we couldnt have made it a success without our excellent account representatives including Beth Brennan, Karli Twisselman, Karen Bataglia, Sally Giordano and Nona Cantalupo.

Fun Easy Learn Has Launched A New Language Learning App – “Learn Norwegian 6000 words”

(PRWEB) September 29, 2014

Norway like several European nations has its own national language Norwegian. The recent app launched by Fun Easy Learn aims at making learning the language simpler for people of all ages. The company claims that one can learn Norwegian simply by spending some time with the app. The company has focused on making the app design as interactive and elegant as possible. The company claims that people, especially children, prefer modes of learning that are interactive and not dull.

The app has been specifically redacted for learners that respond better to auditory forms of leaning. While most such applications are available at some cost, the company is giving away the application for free. There are no hidden conditions, and app users will have access to all the 6000 Norwegian words. The app can be downloaded for free from Google Playstore. While the app has an exhaustive collection of 6000 words, the company claims these words have not been randomly chosen.

The 6000 words have actually been very carefully selected and grouped under 140 topics that pertain to different themes. The company has given due emphasis to every word. The app developers at the company have laid stress on translating each Norwegian word into the native language of the user.

The lead app developer recently said at an event: The design and application part are always important. But at the same time it is also important to lay emphasis on the actual knowledge that the user ultimately retains. We are including pronunciation for each word, the phonetic transcription of the same and an image for easy identification. The aim is to make it easier for the user to retain the meaning of the words.

The manager of the site spoke at length about the features of the app. He said: Our app is different from other apps that help users learn Norwegian. While the topics are limited in most apps, we are bringing to our users an assortment of 140 different thematic topics. These topics are related to everyday lives and include the words that are used most often.

About the Company

Fun Easy Learn is a leading language-based app developer. The company has already created apps that help in learning English, French, German and Hindi. It recently added another feather to its hat by launching an app to aid learning Norwegian.

More information about the app is available at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.funeasylearn.norwegian.

Pacifica Commercial Realty Continues To Grow And Extend Its Reach Locally And Abroad

Paso Robles, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2014

Pacifica Commercial Realty is pleased to introduce Paul Shannon as the newest member of its growing team. Having prospered through the economic downturn by innovating, Pacifica partners Newlin Hastings and Bryan Beckham continually leverage marketing methods and technology. With the addition of Shannon to their team, they look forward to improving the reach of their online presence and to expanding their range of services.

We are excited to continue to announce the expansion of our team to help us meet our clients demands throughout the Central Coast, Beckham said. With the recent hire of Paul Shannon, Pacifica will implement the most updated techniques and marketing programs to ensure our clients have the critical edge in knowledge, marketing, and exposure for their properties.

Hastings agreed, saying, Paul brings a new online approach to Pacifica. As we look towards 2015 and beyond, Pacifica has positioned itself as a market leader and we look forward to a continued recovery.

Creative marketing & innovative technology

A graduate of San Diego State with a BS in Entrepreneurship and Central Coast resident since 1988, Shannon has spent the last few years developing online marketing programs for local businesses. As a developer of the successful Access Local Search for Paso Robles-based marketing firm Access Publishing, Shannon has worked with over 150 local business owners. When the partners at Pacifica Commercial decided to launch their wine division website at pasowinerealestate.com, they awarded the contract to Shannon based on his innovation, creativity, and ability to perform.

This has been a great project, generating traffic from multiple countries including Brazil, Australia, Hong Kong, and Argentina to name a few, Shannon said. With thousands of unique visitors to the website, we are getting our listings into the hands of international and local buyers. Our goal is to continually improve the reach and functionality of our online presence and offer a unique experience for buyers and sellers of wineries.

In order to serve the wine industry, Pacifica Commercial Realty agent Steve Meixner joined the team in 2012 and created the Wine Properties Division. Since then, he has focused on representing winery and vineyard buyers and sellers. The addition of Shannon to the team, according to Meixner, will have a tremendous impact on expanding the companys reach.

Paul is a talented and amazing young man, Meixner said. Having worked with him to develop our pasowinerealestate.comsite, I have first-hand knowledge of his experience, expertise, and professionalism he is a great addition to our team.

I have always been interested in real estate, Shannon said. I have the ability to help business owners improve their marketability, whether that means finding the proper building, taking a look at their need for a lease, or any number of real estate options. I am looking forwarding to bringing a 21st century marketing technique to Pacifica and our interactions with clients, with the added dedication of lending a personal touch in order to meet their real estate needs.
