Our mission is simple: To provide peace of mind.


We always start with you.

Everyone’s situation, needs and goals are unique. That’s why we always start by listening very carefully and getting to know you until we understand exactly what you’re looking for. We want to hear your questions and will never rush you. Wherever you are in the process, we’re ready to help until we find the right Medicare plan for you.

Helping others is in our DNA.

Years ago, RetireMEDiQ president Don Mackos identified the need for a service to provide health coverage guidance to local retirees and anyone age 65 and older. As health care was becoming more complex, an increasing number of those preparing to retire or looking to transition to Medicare were left to figure out their options on their own. He envisioned a team of passionate individuals who could step in and provide expert guidance in a very thoughtful, personal way. In 2007, RetireMEDiQ opened its doors and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. We have emerged as a recognized regional leader and, to date, have provided stress-free Medicare guidance to more than 50,000 retirees.

We are committed to giving back.

Our community is a top priority to all of us at RetireMEDiQ, and we’re committed to giving back with the goal of improving the lives of those around us. For more than three years, we’ve partnered closely with the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati and Miami Valley chapters to drive awareness surrounding this devastating disease and to work towards finding a cure. Each year, our employees participate in numerous fundraising events, including the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, that generate more than $75,000 to support Alzheimer’s research, programs and services.

Your safety is our highest priority.

The current pandemic has had a huge impact on the population that we serve. As a result, we have taken significant steps and modified the way we’re conducting business. Don Mackos, founder of RetireMEDiQ, shares his thoughts and the approach we are taking to ensure your overall health and safety.

However, if there are changes to plans, RetireMEDiQ will carefully review your client profile to ensure you are on the plan that is most suitable for your needs and budget. If you are unhappy with your current plan, our team of advisors will work with you to identify an alternative.

At RetireMEDiQ, every decision is made with our clients in mind, and we seek out partners who have three important qualities:

  • Stability: We perform a careful review of an insurer’s track record and look for ongoing dependability. It is important that we can rely on our partners, especially in times of health care change and reform.
  • Affordability: We offer health care plans that meet our clients’ financial situations without sacrificing quality or options. Our clients come to us looking for the right plan for their retirement budget, needs and lifestyle.
  • High customer satisfaction: We are here to provide peace of mind regarding your health care coverage, which is why we partner with companies that have high customer satisfaction ratings, have strong star ratings, and are popular within our service area.
