Independent Insurance Agent: Medicare Advantage & Medicare Supplements

Serving Medicare Beneficiaries in Southern California

Are you looking for a skilled and independent Medicare insurance specialist?  Dan Griset would like to meet you and provide you with the benefit of over 40 years of experience providing client-centered services. With Griset Medicare Solutions at your side you can choose Medicare protections that are well-planned and cost-effective.

How We Serve You

About half of seniors report that Medicare is confusing at enrollment and even later.  An AARP survey found that only 40% of Medicare beneficiaries review their plan changes each year because it’s still confusing.

Our success is based on the personal attention given to the needs and preferences of each client. As a non-biased, independent Medicare specialist, we are able to blend client priorities with customized personal coverage. This planning considers these priorities: an anticipated lifestyle, maintenance of preferred physician and medical service relationships, continuation of needed medications, limitation of financial risk, and the retirement budget.

Please explore our website and learn about the Four Medicare Options, the Two Steps for Choosing Your Medicare, and the Three Times for coverage reviews.

Our Goal

Providing Medicare coverage choices that are tailored to your unique needs and preferences.

Why is it smart to work with an Independent Medicare Agent?

As an independent Medicare Insurance Agent we work for YOU, not for an insurance company. Unlike a “captive agent” or call center with only one plan to sell, we are independent and unbiased. We can work this way because we spend more than 100 hours annually to be certified with most of the major Medicare plans. This significant investment of time allows us to provide you with many coverage choices, not just one.  The goal is to find the coverage that is best for you.  As an Independent Medicare Agent we are on your side of the table at all times!


We work for you without charge because when you review your options, and choose and enroll in a plan,  we are compensated by that plan.  We continue serving you without charge each year thereafter by offering a coverage review to optimize your benefits and keep them affordable.

We’d love to connect with you and cure any Medicare confusion.
