Why Use a Licensed Agent for Medicare Plans?

Anastasia Iliou Medicare

How are you enrolling in Medicare? Have you considered using a licensed agent? Licensed agents are experts who can help you navigate the confusing world of health care and select the best Medicare options for your needs. There are no extra costs associated with them!

Why should I use a Licensed Agent?

Licensed agents who sell Medicare plans dedicate their careers to helping Medicare-eligible Americans find the best health care plans for their needs. They are experts in their field and are available to answer any questions you have and help you go through the Medicare plan enrollment process.

If you attempt to enroll in Medicare Advantage, prescription drug plans, or other coverage options without using a licensed agent, you’ll have to speak with someone over the phone or go through the process online by yourself. That means you’ll have fewer opportunities to ask questions and more opportunities to make mistakes. We don’t blame you – Medicare is confusing. That’s why we have licensed agents in 38 states!

Our licensed agents are certified and contracted to sell plans from several different carriers. That means that they do not have any bias when it comes to helping you select a plan! They get paid no matter what plan you choose. That means that in most cases, if two plans that are available to you are almost exactly the same but one will cost you less, they can sell you the cheaper option.

Are there Medicare Fees Associated with Licensed Agents?

There are no additional Medicare fees associated with licensed agents. Whether you enroll over the phone, online, or through a sales representative, you will pay the same price. Licensed agents do earn commission from their plan sales, but that does not impact your price. 

It’s like buying a car. Most car salesmen earn commission on the cars that they sell, but that doesn’t mean that the cars are more expensive. A $30,000 car is still a $30,000 car whether you purchase it from a commission-based salesman or not. A $300 health plan premium is still a $300 premium whether you purchase it from a commission-based sales agent or not. There are no extra Medicare fees for purchasing from a sales agent.

Licensed Agent Websites and Finding Your Sales Agent

Some agents will have their own websites promoting their services. While there’s nothing wrong with doing your own research and finding your own agent, we do offer a service to connect you with a licensed agent near you and schedule an appointment for you. You don’t have to do any of the work!
