We are proud to support Men’s Health Month in June, as men comprise approximately 42% of our client base, and we value the opportunity to educate them on health conditions that impact them. Many Americans are not properly educated about disability statistics or insurance, and therefore find themselves physically, emotionally, and financially unprepared when illness or injury renders them unable to work. Additionally, because men often prioritize their family’s well-being over their own, they are far less likely to take preventative health care measures throughout their lifetime.
Many American wage earners are not prepared for a loss of income because they underestimate their likelihood of becoming disabled due to their current health or non-physical job. However, the Council for Disability Awareness reports that a typical, non-smoking American male who works an office job and maintains some regular physical activity stands a 38% chance of becoming disabled for five years or longer during his career.
Along with not being properly educated about their chances of becoming disabled, many men also do not take the simple, yet significant steps necessary for early detection of health problems. The Men’s Health Network states that women are 24% more likely to visit the doctor for regular health screenings than men, causing many men to battle illnesses that could have easily been prevented, and ultimately contributing to the trend of men dying younger than women.
Today The Advocator Group announced the launch of Aevo Insurance Services, LLC—a Medicare-focused insurance agency with a highly collaborative approach to matching clients with Medicare plans. Aevo Services was created in response to the need for clear and direct guidance on Medicare decisions. This service provides us with an exciting opportunity to maintain relationships with our SSDI clients after their claims have ended, as well as begin new relationships with individuals struggling on their own to navigate the Medicare process.
Aevo Services also offers assistance to employers and employees transitioning from group health coverage to Medicare. We prioritize matching clients with Medicare plans that meet their unique healthcare and financial needs, ensuring that they receive exceptional service while also keeping employer costs low.
The name “Aevo” was carefully selected for its Latin translation, “lifetime,” which reflects our mission to be a dependable presence for our clients throughout life’s many changes. Aevo Services seeks to establish partnerships with clients by providing resources and expertise to guide them through the entire Medicare process—from selecting an initial plan, to the annual renewal of plans as client health and healthcare needs evolve.
Many new Medicare recipients choose plans that are financially stressful or provide inadequate coverage because the multiple plan options and strict guidelines can be overwhelming. We are thrilled to demonstrate our commitment to phenomenal service through Aevo Services as we walk clients through this process and help them feel in control as we match them with plans that truly meet their needs and see their lives change.
