5 Pros of Using Medicare Agents to Find a Plan

Monday, October 9, 2017 10:20 AM

Whether you’re new to Medicare or are a long-time Medicare beneficiary, an agent can help save you time, money, and your sanity when trying to navigate all your different Medicare options. You don’t have to wander around the confusing world of Medicare alone. Medicare agents are educators, guidance counselors, and translators who can help you understand insurance policy details and terms you may not be familiar with. Even if you’re not ready to decide or are just browsing, you can still eliminate hours of confusion and frustration by calling an agent with your questions. Utilize their knowledge and expertise to make an informed decision when picking a plan that offers the right Medicare coverage for your needs. Let agents be your resource!

Agents Are in the Know

Insurance agents should be up to date on the latest Medicare industry news and have access to important information. An agent’s expert advice and guidance may help you make an informed decision in a fraction of the time you might spend trying to do it yourself.

Access to Multiple Providers

With access to dozens of plans from multiple insurance companies at their fingertips, agents can save you time by searching all of the plans available to you at once. Their experience and knowledge navigating different policies can help you find the right plan in less time. Avoid having to call each health insurance company yourself and let the agent do the leg work for you.

Good Value for Your Money

An independent agent does not work for any particular insurance company and can help you find the most cost-efficient plan because they have access to plans from multiple insurance companies – not just one. This is in contrast to working with a captive insurance agent who works for one specific insurance company. At, our independent licensed agents are able to access rates across insurance companies, so you get the right plan for your budget and needs.

Personalized Attention

Agents take the time to provide personalized Medicare quotes based on factors unique to you such as your age, location, gender, and health issues. Talk with an agent about your needs and budget and they’ll help you find the cost-effective options for Medicare Advantage (Part C), Prescription Drug Plans (Part D), and Supplemental Insurance Plans (Medigap) that are right for you.

It’s Free

Best of all, talking to an agent and getting a quote is free! Medicare agents are paid by the insurance companies, so there are no costs to you.

If you’re Medicare eligible and interested in learning about your Medicare health insurance options, call us at (888) 815-3313 - TTY 711 and speak with a licensed Medicare sales agent to get help finding the right plan for your needs and budget today!
