WHO IS VINCENT F. CERILLI – President, Retiree Health Benefits, Inc.
Vincent Cerilli has been directly involved with the healthcare industry for over 30 years. For the past 15 years he has focused on the senior market in an advisory and consulting role to employers and seniors regarding their Medicare coverage and supporting healthcare plan needs. In the early years of his career, being employed by Blue Cross & Blue Shield to support consumer and employer clients, he gained valuable experience with learning what consumers needed to best be served by their healthcare plan. Vince has adapted this to serving the senior market and is considered an expert in his field.
As the Medicare healthcare market changed over the years, Vince has assisted Companies and seniors do the same to adapt their needs to the Federal and State Agency programs, and Private Medicare Health Plans. Vince is certified in senior programs for the Medicare market and licensed to offer Seniors health insurance plans. Vince and his staff at Retiree Health Benefits, Inc. assist seniors and employers daily with advice on enrolling properly in Medicare, to comparing Medigap or Med Advantage plans for seniors, or to securing an affordable health plan for a former employee to replace COBRA coverage. Each of these requires patience and sensitivity to the seniors’ need to navigate the complicated Medicare environment with all the qualifying and penalty-ridden rules and regulations.
Vince and his staff pride themselves on finding a “positive outcome” for everyone that reaches out to them. Vince has assisted thousands of Seniors over-the-years secure affordable healthcare coverage. This includes working with many Companies transitioning their retiree health plans to more affordable programs for their retirees, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
For example, Vince continues to help retirees of bankrupt companies Enron and Bethlehem Steel, when these Seniors had nowhere else to turn as their senior healthcare coverage was terminated over 8 years ago. Vince and his company stepped-in to secure coverage for the retirees that continues to this day. Vince and his staff welcome the opportunity to assist all Seniors with the challenge of understanding and navigating through Medicare, and enrolling in a health plan that fits their needs.
