Michael Foster

How he’s helping transform healthcare in Rhode Island

Michael knows how overwhelming it can be to choose Medicare coverage. That’s why he uses a personal approach to understand his clients’ specific needs and engage them in a conversation about what’s important to them. He has more than a decade of experience as a trusted advisor helping Rhode Islanders understand Medicare coverage from part A to part D.

His responsibilities, experience, and background

To help Rhode Islanders find the best solutions for their Medicare coverage needs, Michael conducts free seminars where he discusses Medicare Parts A, B, and D, along with Medicare Advantage, Medigap, and dental plan options. He gets frequent requests to speak at various clubs, associations, and businesses around the state. He can customize his seminars for specific groups to help educate them on Medicare and the coverage options that go along with it. Michael even conducts individual appointments at homes and businesses to meet with clients at their convenience.

Michael graduated from Quinnipiac University with a Bachelor of Communications and a double minor in History and Political Science. Since 2004, Michael has been helping Blue Cross members learn about their Medicare coverage options over the phone. Now he works mostly outside the office helping clients face-to-face. He has helped thousands of Rhode Islanders find the individual Medicare coverage solutions that are best for their needs.

His community involvement

Michael is an active member of the community, volunteering at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, McAuley House, and Amos House among others. He has also participated in events around Rhode Island for the Victoria Alviti Foundation and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
