We would highly recommend Len Barend as your insurance counselor. Len helped us to navigate the Medicare Process, from the initial appointment, to the follow up on medications and supplemental medical plans.
We found him to be very knowledgeable and patient when explaining the Medicare enrollment process. He has also continued to be available to answer our follow up questions as we find necessary. Over all we feel that we couldn't have had a better advocate. He made what we thought was a complicated process much simpler.

Hi Len,
I want to thank you for the time and effort you expended helping me choose and sign up for the best Medicare Part D Prescription plan, especially considering the insurer of the plan you recommended does not cooperate with Brokers. I am an engineer with a higher than normal technology IQ, and I still found the Part D section of the Medicare.gov site impossible to understand and extremely difficult to navigate. Only with your coaching and explanations was I able to choose a plan that works best for my needs.

Heaven help us if the Medicare site is really easier to deal with than the Obamacare sites are.

Hi Len,
Just wanted to thank you so much for all your help getting Glen & I set up with our Medical Insurance & Medicare needs.
As we discussed, trying to understand all the items in the various programs is not an easy process but you were a tremendous help navigating us through.

We will reach out if we need additional information or questions.

Dear Mr. Barend:

Brad and I are writing to thank you, Len, for all the help you have given us in procuring health insurance coverage. We originally met you at a meeting of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce in 2005. We had started a business and needed health coverage. Almost every year after that we met with you at our home to find the best policies for our needs.

As you are aware, I unfortunately had many health problems when we met. As the years went on I added to the plethora of issues confronting me. Regardless, you were there to guide us. We have never met anyone who took his clients interest to heart as much as you do. We am so grateful for the many hours you spent on your own time researching my many and expensive medications.

You were excellent in recommending which policies were best for us based on my need for primary care physicians and specialists. We realize this was all done on your own time with us in mind. You are an exemplary business man and taught us so much about how to navigate the difficulties of today's medical maze.

Over the years you became a very trusted resource and a wonderful friend. Truly, you are a diligent, professional and exceptional broker. We would proudly recommend your services to others looking for benefits and/or other insurances. We view you as a gentleman at the pinnacle of your career field and appreciate all you have done for us.

Please feel free to share this with others and prospective clients. There is no doubt in our mind your customers will value your stellar expertise.

We will always appreciate you immensely.

I have been a licensed insurance agent in Nevada for 40 years and I was surprised at the complexity of enrolling in Medicare and selecting the supplemental insurance coverage that was best for me. I am grateful for Len’s expertise in guiding me through the process, and helping me with my enrollment in Medicare and the purchase of the supplemental insurance policies. While it is possible (maybe) that I could have eventually figured the whole thing out, Len’s experience and help made the entire process much quicker and easier to understand and complete, and most importantly, it was done correctly. Thanks, Len.
