Very Helpful

Melissa and Debby were very helpful in picking the best Medicare Supplement and dental insurance policies for my husband and myself.  I will share my experience with my friends.

Very Proactive!

Melissa gave a presentation at work which was very compelling.  She and her assistant have been very proactive in helping us finalize the long term care insurance policies.

Honesty, not just selling

My husband and I met with Melissa to discuss a long term care policy which we have had for about 10 years. We wanted to see if "we could do better," and Melissa advised us to keep what we have as it is more complete than what we could purchase now..and for a higher price. We appreciated her honesty. She was there to help, not just sell us her product. We'll be going back when it's time for purchasing secondary insurance on

Independent Review of Existing Policy Provides Peace of Mind

Recently we had a series of meetings with our Estate Planning Attorney to review and update our pertinent documents.  In the process, she suggested we have our LTC policies assessed, which we’ve had since 2002.  She suggested Melissa Barnickel for the job as she is a specialist in these types of insurance.  Since we had often wondered if our policies were still relevant and worthwhile today, we were delighted by the opportunity to have a trusted professional provide us with an independent review.

Helpful in identifying benefits that met my needs

Figuring out what long term care policy to buy can be very confusing, so I am grateful to Melissa for helping me identify what benefit plan would best serve my needs. She clearly knows what the plans offer and how to match the benefit amounts with my financial and long term care needs. I really appreciated her wisdom on what was a very difficult decision. She is not only an expert, but a great person to work with. Thank you, Melissa!
