If you’re turning 65, then you have multiple Medicare Insurance options ranging from Medicare Supplement (Medigap), Medicare Advantage, and Prescription Drug Plans. We represent most all the major insurance companies and have no favorites – but rather work for our clients to provide the smartest Medicare and health insurance coverage.

Medicare is confusing! Our complimentary “Medicare 101” educational seminars add a human touch to understanding Medicare fundamentals and help individuals make smarter and more informed decisions. Together, we discuss goals, lifestyle, and health care needs to determine the most appropriate insurance strategy. As added value, we’ll also assist with establishing your very own Social Security Account and assist with enrollment in Original Medicare Parts A & B!

Our Story

Chuck and Martha Uhlir began their insurance careers in the mid 1990’s and in 2005 became employed by a nationally known Medicare insurance company.
As the senior population continued to expand and more companies entered the market, it became evident to the Uhlir’s that they could better serve the needs of their clients by offering choices from multiple Medicare insurance carriers. They strongly believed that every individual should have an opportunity to choose a plan best suited for their individual healthcare needs, lifestyle and financial budget. “Rather than fitting our clients to a plan, we wanted to fit a plan to our clients.” From this simple strategy, The Health Insurance Shoppe (The Shoppe) became a reality when it opened for business on Battleground Avenue in 2011.
To better understand and relate to their growing clientele, Chuck and Martha earned their credentials as Certified Senior Advisors (CSA)® in 2013. Building solid relationships based on transparency and trust, The Shoppe has continued to grow with each passing year. Eleven agents now serve clients from across North Carolina.
The Shoppe moved to its present location at historic Revolution Mill in 2016. The Shoppe has expanded its options and offers multiple Medicare, health and life insurance products from nationally recognized insurance companies.
If you or your family and friends would like a professional, yet relaxed and comfortable place to come learn about insurance options best suited for you, then we invite you to visit us at Revolution Mill or attend one of our free monthly educational seminars.

Why Certified Senior Advisor Matters

The Society of Certified Senior Advisors (SCSA) educates and certifies professionals who work with seniors through its Working with Older Adults education program and the Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)® credential.
The CSA® Working with Older Adults education course gives professionals practical, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and resources to help them serve older adults more effectively. The CSA® professional better understands the health, social and financial issues that are important to seniors and the dynamics of how these factors work together for the protection of their health and welfare.
The CSA® credential is the leading certification for professionals serving seniors and is a designation awarded only to qualified individuals. Older adults can be confident that CSA® professionals are knowledgeable in the issues facing older adults and maintain the highest ethical standards.
