Who We Are?
Founded in 2011 in Bluffton, South Carolina, May River Medicare Insurance is an independent medicare brokerage agency licensed with over 30 different national insurance carriers such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, Mutual of Omaha and many other A-rated carriers. Although the bulk of our business is concentrated in Bluffton, Hilton Head, Beaufort and all of Georgia, we are licensed over 32. Over the years, we’ve educated empowered and enrolled clients in the ideal medicare plans based on their particular needs rather than the needs of the insurance carriers-we are the best-kept secret in the medicare business. We pass our wealth of medicare knowledge on to you – absolutely free. There is never a charge for our services. May River Medicare consulting is free.
Chris Dewey (Founder of May River Medicare)Contact Chris at 843-227-6725
Chris Dewey started his career as a stockbroker on Long Island. He later worked as a financial planner at Morgan Stanley and then UBS Financial in Hilton Head Island. A few years later Humana hired Chris to train their medicare agents in financial planning and Chris helped Humana agents sell fixed indexed and fixed annuities as well as life insurance, and long-term care for estate planning. He also worked as a captive agent for Wellcare before going independent in 20011-2012. Unlike most insurance agents who are jack of all trade agents selling everything from annuities to long-term care, Chris and May River Medicare is like a laser beam in the insurance business focusing strictly and solely on medicare education for folks turning 65, over 65, or disabled and on medicare beneficiaries who are under 65 years of age. Medicare, ACA, and dental and vision are all Chris does. Chris and his family live in Old Town Bluffton and when he’s not working you can often find him across the street from his office playing basketball or walking the dogs to the May River down by the Bluffton Oyster Factory. Chris has two kids: Emma Dewey is a junior at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville studying to be a PA, and his son Jack is a senior at May River Medicare.

Roxie Goodman – Licensed Health and Life Agent/Client Services
Hi! I am Roxie Goodman. I am an independent licensed Medicare agent for the states of Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. I work with Chris Dewey, founder of Mayriver Medicare and Meg Mcmanes, who has an active hearings practice and has represented thousands of clients in Social Security Disability in the Federal District courts and Federal Circuit court of appeals, and has handled thousands of appeals over the last decade. I have known both Chris and Meg for the last decade.
My past experience includes working as a patient advocate through many doctor’s offices back in the early 2000s. My clients also included the disabled, veterans and their spouses, retirees, and family and friends.
I began working with the general public at the age of 15 in my hometown in Georgia. My educational experience included working with Special Needs students who also struggled with learning and emotional disabilities. My academics included Ela, Math, Life Science, Georgia History, Environmental Science, and substitute teaching in grade levels K -12. Retiring in 2019, I continued in the educational field as a substitute teacher.
It was in 2020, when talking with Chris Dewey, I realized I had an opportunity to help the general public with similar needs, not understanding the concept of Medicare Insurance plans and how they work and how I could help them by educating, enrolling and most importantly empathizing with their every need. I am now approaching my first full year as a licensed Medicare agent and continue to enjoy meeting people and knowing how I can help them, based on their daily needs.
I consider myself fortunate to be working with Chris and Meg. I continue to learn how technology plays an important part in being able to help clients in every possible way through the use of cell phones, laptops, computers, and through Sales/Marketing events.
In my spare time, I enjoy Bass fishing and cooking with my husband Billy and spending time with our family and grandchildren when possible. Like Chris, remember, you pay me nothing for services. But you do have an advocate for life. I work for YOU. My reward is knowing I have helped you.Contact Roxie at 912-310-5742
