The Fedeli Group Enters Medicare Space, Announces Acquisition of KAZ Company

The Fedeli Group Enters Medicare Space, Announces Acquisition of KAZ Company

The Fedeli Group, one of Ohio’s largest independent employee benefits and risk management consulting firms, has announced the acquisition of KAZ Company, an Independence, Ohio based brokerage firm focused on Medicare education and service.

“At a time when the healthcare system is facing tremendous pressure for change, employers continue to seek ways to support employees in making informed health care decisions,” said Alex Mechling, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, The Fedeli Group. “Employers and individuals need a steward to help them navigate the array of available care options. With an aging work force, Medicare is an important piece of this equation. We are excited to add the expertise of KAZ Company and provide greater value to our clients and individuals across Ohio and beyond.”

Whether entering retirement or choosing to continue their career, individuals age 65 and older have an important decision to make regarding Medicare. Often, these individuals are unsure of where to go for assistance or support in navigating the Medicare decision making and enrollment process.

“With most health care programs offered through one’s employer, we are used to our employer helping us select a health care benefit program,” said Kathy Hirko, President, KAZ Company. “Once we reach Medicare age, that support goes away or is much more limited. Together with The Fedeli Group, we are closing that gap and guiding the individual through the Medicare insurance maze in a way that is positive for both the individual and the employer.”

“Kathy and her team share in The Fedeli Group’s purpose to impact the lives of those we serve,” Mechling said. “Whether you are managing an employer health care program, or an individual seeking assistance for yourself or a loved one, we are positioned to help you.”

Our mission is to help clients protect assets and enhance employee outcomes through the delivery of exceptional risk management and employee benefits consulting services and products.

Client Testimonials

  • Myra

    It is with great pleasure that I recommend you to Caryn Zwick of Kaz Company. Most of us like to work with folks for whom we have a personal referral or reference; let this be mine to you. I met Caryn at a vulnerable time for me, at 72, after decades of being on my company medical plan, I had only 3 weeks to sign up for Medicare and select appropriate Supplemental and Part D. It was an overwhelming time, or it would have been had I not been fortunate enough to meet Caryn. She took the time to get to know me, to understand my financial and medical coverage needs, and to sit down with me at my computer to beard the lion in its den, i.e. the Medicare.gov website. Then three weeks later, during the last quarter enrollment period for Part D, she called to say she had found something even better. I recommend Caryn to you with no reservations. I value her expertise, her integrity and her patience, but most of all her humanity. Selecting the right Supplement/Medicare Advantage and Part D plans is not an easy task, you should have Caryn by your side.
  • Susan - Carrollton, Ohio

    I would like to use this opportunity to share with you the high esteem we place on Brenda Gregory and her services offered here. She comes to our community and this senior center bringing a caring personality and a wealth of knowledge to those struggling to make critical decisions. Insurance issues can be very confusing and intimidating, but her help along these lines has made a difference for many. We appreciate and value her work here.
  • Connie - Akron, Ohio

    Sharon Honroth has been a guiding light in the process of maneuvering through the multiple Medicare supplements out there. She carefully reviews individual’s needs and medications to help choose just the right plan. I have referred her to many of my of my colleagues who are looking for their right plan, and all have been very satisfied with her services. I continue to recommend her to anyone who has to make these choices. I am one satisfied customer!
  • Tom & Cathy

    Aimee is a blessing in our lives and has been for the last few (4-5?) years. She is a pleasure to work with; always answering our questions, even if she has to research for the answers. We know we can trust that she'll find what will work best for us. My Husband has referred a lot of people to her and has told them they won't be disappointed. In the near future we will be moving to another city and county and we are so happy that we won't be leaving Aimee. She will still be able to be there for us. Aimee is a sweetie and we appreciate all the help she's give us.
  • Ted - Shaker Heights, Ohio

    As a medical professional, I am well aware of the complexity involved in navigating the options available in choosing the appropriate Medicare plan which is best suited for an individual. I have recommended Kathy to my patients as well as personally seeking her advice in choosing plans for both my wife and myself. Kathy is knowledgeable, trustworthy and is well versed in all Medicare options available to help you choose the most appropriate plan. I recommend her without reservation.
  • Patricia

    Being a first time Medicare recipient, Shelley was more than accommodating in showing me the many Medicare plan options available. She is very professional and clearly understands the different Medicare plans that she presented. Shelley was caring and helpful during the Medicare plan selection process, and for that, I am most thankful!
  • Dick & Chris

    We used to struggle to find the right Medicare Supplement Insurance. It was all so confusing. Then to our great pleasure, we came in contact with the KAZ Company. We do not struggle at all now when it comes to enrollment time.
  • Dennis & Nancy

    Lorrie's assistance was invaluable. She could nor have been more forthright, objective and cognizant of our needs. We would be proud to recommend her to anyone at any time.
