insurance brokers for medicare help you get the coverage you need

Insurance brokers for Medicare can assist with the entire process of getting insurance. However, many people are not entirely clear on the role insurance brokers play in helping them find affordable coverage. This is not their fault; the world of insurance is notoriously complex, and those outside of it are simply not exposed to the ins and outs of the industry.

I’m here to help you understand your options for Medicare, as well as help guide you through the process of finding and getting the right coverage for you and your family. Before I help you find the coverage that’s right for you, let’s dispel some of the common misconceptions of working with an insurance broker when it comes to finding Medicare coverage.

Misconception #1: all insurance brokers are the same

One of the leading factors behind this misconception is the assumption that all agents offer the same products. While this is mostly true, the experience and service with that insurance broker will be drastically different than the service you receive from another broker.

While two agents may offer the same product, a helpful, personable agent will take the time to listen to your needs and concerns to find the most appropriate coverage, not just coverage based on price. For nearly two decades, I’ve helped hundreds of clients get the insurance they deserve.

Misconception #2: insurance agents are hands-off after the sell

This is certainly the case with some agents, but not me. I understand that selecting the right Medicare coverage is only one part of our relationship. This is especially true for those who need additional guidance to ensure the plan is exactly what they need.

After a plan is in place, my clients may still have questions for me. This is completely understandable; navigating the complexities of how insurance works in different scenarios can be a challenge—even for those who are no strangers to the industry. I’m proud to help my clients understand each aspect of their coverage, and always enjoy hearing their perspectives on my service.

Misconception #3: insurance agents are essentially middlemen

This isn’t quite accurate. While insurance brokers are your go-to between you and insurance companies, we don’t perform the same roles as middlemen. In fact, we’re more like the sales team. Of course, my goal is to sell you the insurance coverage that’s right for you, but I do so without a price hike that is usually associated with middlemen.

What surprises some people is that working with me can actually save them money when compared to shopping for insurance on their own. I can help you compare prices through several different providers, saving you hundreds of dollars on your total costs.
