Fedeli Group acquires Medicare-focused KAZ Company
The Fedeli Group, Ohio-based employee benefits and risk management consulting firms, has acquired KAZ Company for an undisclosed price.
Based in Independence, Ohio, KAZ Company is a brokerage firm that helps individuals to meet their Medicare requirements.
Alex Mechling – Senior Vice President and Managing Director at The Fedeli Group said: “At a time when the healthcare system is facing tremendous pressure for change, employers continue to seek ways to support employees in making informed health care decisions.
“Employers and individuals need a steward to help them navigate the array of available care options. With an aging work force, Medicare is an important piece of this equation. We are excited to add the expertise of KAZ Company and provide greater value to our clients and individuals across Ohio and beyond.”
According to Fedeli Group, people aged 65 and older have a major decision to make regarding Medicare, whether they are entering retirement or selecting to continue their career. The company said that often the individuals are not sure of where to go for help or support in navigating their decision making and enrollment process related to Medicare.
Kathy Hirko – President of KAZ Company said: “With most health care programs offered through one’s employer, we are used to our employer helping us select a health care benefit program.
“Once we reach Medicare age, that support goes away or is much more limited. Together with The Fedeli Group, we are closing that gap and guiding the individual through the Medicare insurance maze in a way that is positive for both the individual and the employer.”
