Our goal is to help you navigate medicare

We’re here to help!

For most people, Medicare begins on the 1st of the month when you turn 65.

Beginning 3 months prior to the month you turn 65, you’ll be in your Medicare Initial Enrollment Period, or IEP.

During this enrollment period, you will need to make decisions about how you will receive your Medicare benefits and prescription drug plan.

There is a lot to consider and it can be confusing.

Medical, Dental, Disability, Life AD&D and Vision.

PBCI incorporated in 2009 and focused on Medicare, Dental, Final Expense, Hospital Indemnity and Long Term Care. Wife Sharon’s career in the furniture industry spans 33 years. After receiving her health insurance licenses in 2015 she joined Tony in the agency in 2016.

Our services

How can we help you?

From researching your plans and going over costs & enrollment to reviewing your benefits each year, Piedmont Benefit Concepts has your back.

1. Research Plans

We will research Medicare Supplement, Advantage, and Drug plans for you and verify your healthcare provider accepts the plan.

2. Costs & Enrollment

Next, we’ll research your medications and costs, then do the enrollment and follow up.

We will assist with questions or problems that may arise on your behalf. 

3. Review

Every year, we’ll review and research Medicare benefits during your Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) and Open Enrollment Period (OEP), and change plans when necessary.

Our values

Why choose us?

Whether you are local or a phone call away,
we are steadfast in maintaining customer satisfaction.


We are independent agents that offer many insurance carriers. Every year we go through many hours of training to recertify each carrier and stay abreast with the current changes.


Trustworthy and personable, our main objective is to fit the right plan with the client’s needs. Each of our sales careers has been built by the Golden Rule- to treat others as we wish to be treated.


Clients may question if they should stay on their employer’s plan or move to Medicare. With Tony’s extensive background in Employee Benefits, we are able to compare plan to plan and see what the best choice is for each situation.


We are just like many of you – the second greatest generation which is the Baby Boomers. Relating to life’s situations, struggles and accomplishments allows us to understand the needs of each client.

Our clients love us

Thank you and Sharon for your continued support in all our insurance needs. After 20 plus years doing business with you, we feel you’re more like family than the usual business relationship. You have always been there to answer any and all questions pertaining to our needs. We can truly say you’re a hands on guy who anyone would be lucky to have you in their corner.
