Should You Use a Medicare Broker?
Why Should You use a Medicare Broker?
Hi, my name is Don Rousseau, and I am a Medicare Insurance Broker.
New to Medicare?
If you’re new to Medicare, like soon turning 65, or leaving your company plan to go to Medicare, you have decisions to make. Decisions, such as how do I apply for a Medicare card or if I only have Part A how do I get Part B. How do I find a plan; which Insurance company to use; what are my options and benefits. Are my doctors in the plan, and are my prescriptions covered? And finally, what is the best plan with which Insurance company that will best fit my needs and budget?
Medicare Supplement Plans – Advantage Plans – Prescription Drug Plans – Options – Benefits
It is very important to understand Medicare and its options. For example. Do I apply for a Medicare Supplement Plan, or is a Medicare Advantage Plan better for me? How does a prescription drug plan fit in. Should I use a PPO or HMO; what are the differences? Are all the benefits I want available in every plan? What benefits do I really need?
How do I find all the Medicare answers?
How do I find all the answers to understand these Medicare challenges? Should I do it myself? How about a local agent to help me? Or would I be better off using a Medicare Broker?
What’s the difference between an agent and Broker?
I’m glad you asked.
A Captive Medicare Agent – One Insurance Company
A captive Medicare agent is an agent that only represents one Insurance company. Being captive with one Insurance company means he or she will provide you information from that one company only.
A Medicare Broker – Many Insurance Companies
A Medicare Insurance Broker is also an insurance agent but represents a number of different Insurance companies. Therefore, a Medicare Insurance Broker will be able to research a number of different companies to provide you with comparisons of various company plans to help you decide which company and plan is best for you.
A Medicare Broker can also be a Medicare Advisor?
Also, a Medicare Broker can also be a Medicare Advisor. He or she can provide free and reliable Medicare advice while assisting you in navigating the confusing world of Medicare. A Medicare Advisor will provide his or her clients with a more thorough review of Medicare to better understand Medicare options and benefits and will continue to serve you in the future after your enrollment in a plan. Many Medicare Advisors provide annual follow-up to their clients to assist in answering Medicare questions and help with reviewing any future Medicare plan changes.
So, should you use a Medicare Broker?
I strongly recommend using a Medicare Broker who is also a Medicare Advisor. I especially encourage using a Medicare Broker and Advisor if you are new to Medicare or feel you do not have an adequate knowledge of Medicare to make the best decisions for yourself.
