Licensed insurance agents can be useful resources

There are several reasons why it can be beneficial to shop for Medicare insurance with the help of a broker.

  1. One-stop shopping
    If you shop for Medicare plans on your own, you may have to contact each insurance carrier separately to inquire about their plan options. By leveraging a broker, you can have multiple plan options laid out in front of you at once to more easily compare your choices.

  2. Expert help
    When you call an insurance agent from MedicareAdvantage.com, you’ll speak to a representative who is licensed to sell Medicare plans that are available where you live. Insurance brokers can discuss your health care needs and your budget, and they can answer any Medicare questions you may have.

  3. Consumer protection
    Medicare insurance plans can be full of terms and conditions. A broker can help you better understand the terms of your plan.

  4. Enrollment assistance
    Licensed insurance agents can walk you through the Medicare enrollment process and help ensure that your coverage is properly implemented.

  5. Relationship building
    At some point in the future, you may wish to re-address your Medicare coverage and switch to a new plan based on your changing health care needs. If that day should come, you can work with licensed agents who are familiar with your Medicare coverage history and understand your unique health coverage needs.
