Kate Spilsbury, RSSA®, Prepares for Landmark Medicare Enrollment Period with Early AHIP Certification

Jacksonville, FL - July 1, 2024 - Kate Spilsbury, a seasoned health insurance broker and the
owner of Mere, has successfully completed her AHIP (America’s Health Insurance Plans)
certification for the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) 2025. This marks her 15th
Medicare enrollment period, a testament to her enduring commitment and expertise in the field.
This year's enrollment period is poised to be the most challenging in the past two decades due
to significant changes introduced by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The IRA brings
substantial alterations to the Part D prescription drug coverage within Medicare Standalone
plans and Medicare Advantage plans, marking the largest disruption in benefit design for these
plans. It is estimated that 48.1 million consumers will require a thorough plan review during this
upcoming enrollment period.
"Getting AHIP certified just days after the certification was released underscores how seriously I
am preparing for a very busy Fall," said Spilsbury. "Preparation and working with an
experienced advisor are crucial during this transformative time."
Kate Spilsbury's dedication to staying ahead of industry changes ensures that she is
well-equipped to guide her clients through the complexities of the upcoming enrollment period.
Her proactive approach includes offering local educational events to help seniors understand
the implications of the IRA and prepare accordingly.
For those interested in learning more about the IRA, Kate encourages visiting her website at

reaching out to churches, 55+ community centers, civic groups, and more to offer seminars and
educational sessions on how seniors can navigate these changes.
