HealthCare Options NW
Advising on Medicare and Individual Health Plans
SCROLL DOWN FOR PAGE INFORMATION
The Vancouver Clinic, a 350 provider multi-specialty group practice serving SW Washington for over 80 years, has progressively worked to serve senior patients through the Medicare Advantage (MA) program. We currently have nearly 15,000 Medicare Advantage members assigned to our medical group.
To help our patients who are eligible for this innovative program, we have formed a close working relationship with Healthcare Options NW and its principal broker, Mr. Craig Riley. Craig and his firm take the time to learn about the offerings of our Clinic and work within the CMS guidelines to appropriately educate and inform consumers. Craig holds seminars for seniors on site at the Clinic and is a respected source of fair information on MA plans.
It has been a pleasure to work closely with Craig and his firm for our patients benefit. I can wholeheartedly recommend him to other healthcare groups who are looking for someone in the broker community to closely partner with on Medicare Advantage.
If I can answer any questions or provide further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at 360 397-5520.

To Whom it may concern:
“In my attempt to navigate the Medicare Insurance program, I was fortunate enough to attend one of the seminars put on by Riley Financial.
Craig and Laura made sense out of chaos. In addition, they have helped us with supplemental insurance decisions and Care Insurance. I highly recommend Craig and Laura with Senior HealthCare.”
For over a year, HealthCare Options has been providing education meetings for PeaceHealth Medical Group's patients and those approaching Medicare eligibility age. These meetings have proven valuable to our patients who are often overwhelmed and confused by Medicare and the innumerable mailings they receive Our patients are very appreciative of the information and the accessibility provided by HealthCare Options.
HealthCare Options has also helped to ease the burden of patient questions to clinic staff and providers regarding their Medicare choices.
We have found Craig Riley, Laura Ekerson the entire HealthCare Options staff helpful and sincerely interested in our patients' best interests.

“ Laura and all at the Senior HealthCare office. We really appreciate you guys. The workshop that we attended showed us that we could save over $400 per month on health insurance premiums. We didn't really believe it (too good to be true?) until we researched it further and found out that it was true. Now we not only are saving money each month, but I recently moved my mother over here into an assisted living apartment, and got her signed up for this type of Medicare plan also.”
Thanks again, Vancouver, Washington
“ My wife and I attended one of Senior HealthCare “workshops” and were pleased to find that they had a program that could save us around $ 150.00 per month for essentially the same services we had been getting. We had an individual session with Craig, which answered many questions unique to our situation. We are appreciative of the quick and thorough assistance Riley Financial gave when we a minor squabble with our former insurance company.
Thanks, Dean Harris”
Sharon called to say thank you so much for having the workshop. She said that you helped her and her husband figure out the questions that they needed to ask his current employer and provider. Although they do not need Medicare Advantage now she said that she will definitely be calling us when they do.
As current patients who are approaching Medicare age, my wife and I were surprised at how complicated the process of choosing a supplemental insurance plan was.
Fortunately, the Vancouver Clinic sent a mailing referring us to Craig Riley and Laura Ekerson at Senior HealthCare Options. Laura was very helpful, thorough and knowledgeable. It was a relief to get answers to our questions.

Health Care Options NW has been our "go to" place ever since we both aged Medicare some six years ago. We have visited their office twice by appointment for and have attended workshops every year to understand changing laws and plans. We have also referred many friends to these free services. We could not navigate this maze without this fabulous team. This is the place to go. These are the people to see.
Jim and Joanne Williams
The people at Health Care Options are just wonderful to work with. Very knowledgeable, very helpful, always positive and very easy to work with. We would recommend them to anyone. We always come to them for assistance during the annual Medicare renewal period in December.
Dear Craig and Staff,
Mel and I met with Craig this week with questions about health insurance coverage for over 65's. We currently live in the UK and are considering a move back to the northwest. After spending time online trying to get information about health care options and costs, we felt confused and disheartened about the costs of healthcare. A friend recommended Craig as an excellent resource for our questions. During our office visit with Craig, he presented visuals, shared examples of medicare coverage and provided information for us to review. We left his office with clarity and an understanding of his experience and motivation to inform and support us when we choose a home in the northwest. Our meeting with him gave us confidence and an understanding that having a Medicare plan would be attainable. Mel and I sincerely appreciated meeting with him and would highly recommend his services to anyone wanting answers to questions regarding healthcare during retirement.
