Introducing Tom Potts – Your Hometown Experts

Introducing Tom Potts – Your Hometown Experts

I am talking today with Tom Potts, owner and agent of BluegrassMedicare. It is a local independent insurance company that specializes in helping folks navigate the complex Medicare healthcare world servicing Madison county, central and eastern KY.

Can you tell us about yourself?

I am originally from Owensboro, but I have been in the central Kentucky area since 1989. I have a B.S. in Computer Science and worked as a Programmer/Analyst for 8 years. I became licensed as insurance and financial advisor and moved to central Kentucky at that time. I have been a licensed insurance agent since moving here over 30 years ago.

Tell us a little about your business

We offer a unique complementary service to seniors who are soon to be going on Medicare and those that are already on Medicare by evaluating their existing plans to make sure they are getting everything they are entitled to and paying the least amount out of pocket. We also help people avoid costly penalties and navigate Medicare’s onerous rules. We focus on client education, so clients can make intelligent decisions. We essentially do all the work, from enrollment to supporting them throughout the year.

You mentioned client education.

We recently completed our first Medicare YouTube instructional video called ‘How Medicare is like McDonalds’. We try to make our videos understandable and relatable without all the confusing Medicare jargon. We are working on dozens more so keep an eye out for future videos. Also, we do workshops throughout the year, and we have a proprietary 20 step enrollment process that has been developed and improved over many years.

What makes your company different?

We are local fulltime Medicare specialists. Which means you can reach us when you need us. We are a part of the community. You can visit our office, talk to us face to face and a real person will answer the phone.

What else do you do?

We aren’t afraid to tackle difficult problems. If your supplement premiums or co-pays are too high we can help.  If we can’t help you or solve your problem, no one can.

How are you different than other insurance agents?

We only do one thing, so we try very hard to do it better than everyone else. We don’t try to be all things to all people. You wouldn’t want your primary care doctor to do your heart surgery.

Also, we are not obliged to any one company. We represent every major health insurance company in the area which means we are unbiased in our recommendations, and we can help people find the plan that works best for them at the best price.

How can people get in-touch with you?

They can call 859-285-7600 to setup an appointment, contact us through our website at ‘’ or drop by our office at 369 Big Hill Ave in Richmond, located across from the Richmond Register.

Would you like to add anything else?

Medicare participants get bombarded with false advertisements and annoying calls. Unscrupulous people prey on seniors that don’t know where to turn. Don’t be a victim. Why take the chance now that you don’t have to?

Few communities have a service like what we provide. We like to say, ‘You only turn 65 once but we do it every day.”
