As others have stated, they break US laws by having overseas robo callers calling Medicare beneficiaries. They are not acting in your best interest when they break laws and just want to get you on a policy which may not be the best for you.

I've been trying to get removed from their mailing list. It doesn't happen. I called again today and 3 different people hung up on me when I said I wanted to be removed from getting their JUNK mail. This is horrible customer service.

They say the calls are recorded, however, this isn't the type of customer service anyone would put up with. I doubt the calls are recorded!!!!

Representative, named, Katie, working for Select Quote, led me to a Medicare policy with a company, Wellcare. That company is awful! My prescriptions were not covered, no Medicare part D. How could that be?

When I called the insurance company, I spoke to someone overseas, barely able to speak English. Too much time spent on phone with no resolution. I had them one month, too many. Went to another Medicare plan. This was a horrible experience!!!

My friend is receiving your information stating he's enrolled and in all means he has never heard of this company and sure never ok to you to be his insurance company. We will be watching his bank accounts to make sure no money is getting taking out. This is absurd and very confusing to others.

They are using robocallers and offshore telemarketers and breaking US law (the FCC DNC list and the rules around robocalling and caller id spoofing). I wouldn't trust a company who can't follow our laws and harasses people.

Agents will tell you whatever you might to hear to sign up using their services; even when their knowledge of what you might be seeking falls far short of the actual facts of the matter.

In other words, if you want to be placated by being lied to and;or misinformed, irregardless of what the truth is, this is the place to come to.
