A Guide to Buying the Right Medicare Policy

Advisor Perspectives welcomes guest contributions. The views presented here do not necessarily represent those of Advisor Perspectives.

If your clients bought a bad Medicare policy, it was most likely because they used a bad insurance agent – or no agent at all! As the owner of a Medicare insurance agency, I will teach you how to find a good agent without trying to sell you on us!

In fact, by divulging my theory on finding a good agent will have you realize that our agents aren't necessarily a good fit for you or your clients.

Why is a good agent so very important?

Agents get a bad rap. As do life insurance agents, car salespersons and more. It’s just how it goes. I’m not going to vouch for the life insurance or car salespeople, but I can absolutely vouch for how valuable a good agent is as a your clients transition to the Medicare system.

Medicare is a foreign new land to the average consumer. They need help as they age, and they need help as they manage their Medicare coverage. Lots can go wrong at a time in life where they need good help.

As I describe what makes a good agent, it is from my experience, how I operate our agency. Right, wrong, indifferent doesn’t matter. It’s how I have grown our operation.
