“I was feeling overwhelmed with all of the advertising coming in the mail regarding Medicare plans.  I wanted some clarification and explanation of what I needed and did not need.  This is exactly what I got when I met with the VAS counselor.  I never felt rushed and got some answers to the questions I didn’t even know to ask.  I now feel comfortable choosing plans right for my situation.”
“A special thank you to VAS for helping me with the Homestead Exemption form. I appreciate all the past and present help from VAS.”
“In recent months I have started to use two inhalers.  It has  become  almost impossible to pay for them with my small and  simple  income.  The VAS  counselor helped me apply for financial assistance which has greatly eased my financial and mental health.  I don’t want my drugs to be free, just  affordable.”
“I depend on this service annually. The trained counselors are of  immeasurable value!  They serve capably and in a role to clarify concerns  relevant to the client and skillfully calculate the best plan to save money.”
“My thanks to you and all at VAS for your helpful and very client-customized services. I admire the fact that you are volunteers!”
“Your people were great—professional, knowledgeable and helpful!”
“The subject matter was complicated but the volunteer did a great job, and at least now I know where to go for help.”
