Private Tutoring, Education, & Research Services
Tutoring, Education & Research Services
Our tutoring, education and research service is for when the commission structure of what we get paid to help you for by the Insurance Companies don’t work, like if you are asking for help on an employer plan, where we are not the agent.
Our suggested donation is $150/hour is during the “Off Season.” During Open Enrollment – Medicare Advantage 10.15 – 11.7, Health Care Reform 11.1 to 1.31 there will be an increase. It just gets so hectic.
We often discount these rates or do the research pro bono, if it’s of general interest and will help build our website. Just use the comments/ask a question feature on the relevant page of our website and we generally reply within 1 business day, no charge.
Please note also, that the Evidence of Coverage – Your actual policy – is required to be written in plain English, just read it three times and when you think you understand it, read it again, will answer most every question that comes up.
We do NOT give advice or make recommendations. We simply give you the correct information with a citation to reliable sources.
Why & When might a Research, Tutoring & Education Fee be appropriate?
Dennis Prager in the video above right or scroll down specifically discusses the example of a woman knowing upon walking into the local camera store that she plans to buy a camera online. Nevertheless, she takes up thirty minutes of the salesman’s time with questions about one camera versus another.
You are intentionally stealing time from an innocent salesperson who could be earning a commission from working with a different customer. Are cameras, TVs, stereos and other items more expensive at stores than they are online? YES. But the schnorrer might want to consider that the salesperson’s time, the opportunity to test products, touch them, and compare them is worth the extra money you pay in person. You get what you pay for. … we have obligations as consumers, not just rights.
Yes, being a schnorrer is not illegal. But it’s unethical, and un-Jewish. (Ask any rabbi from any denomination.)
