What is a Medicare agent?

A Medicare agent, who is sometime also a Medicare broker, is a licensed and certified professional who helps seniors navigate the complexities of Medicare. They are trained to understand the different Medicare plans and options available, as well as the rules and regulations surrounding enrollment, coverage, and costs. Medicare agents who are also brokers, work independently and are not affiliated with any specific insurance company or plan. Instead, they are contracted with multiple insurance carriers and offer a range of options to their clients.

A Medicare agent provides valuable guidance and support to seniors who are looking to enroll in Medicare for the first time, as well as those who are already enrolled but need assistance with plan selection or other issues. They can help you understand the different parts of Medicare, including Part A (hospital insurance), Part B (medical insurance), Part C (Medicare Advantage), and Part D (prescription drug coverage). Additionally, they can help you understand your rights and options, and answer any questions you may have about Medicare.

Medicare is a complex and multifaceted program, with many different plans and options to choose from. Understanding the different plans and options can be overwhelming, especially for seniors who are new to the program. However, working with a Medicare agent in Broward County can make the process much easier and less confusing.

There are four main parts to Medicare: Parts A, B, C, and D. Part A covers inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing care, hospice care, and home health care. Part B covers doctor visits, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services. Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is an alternative to traditional Medicare that allows you to receive your benefits through a private insurance company. Part D covers prescription drugs.

A Medicare agent can help you understand the differences between these plans and options, and help you choose the one that best meets your needs and budget. They can also help you understand the costs and benefits of each plan, and help you compare different options side-by-side.

Choosing the right Broward County Medicare plan can be a daunting task, especially if you are unfamiliar with the program or have complex healthcare needs. However, a Medicare agent can help make the process much easier and less stressful.

First, they will review your current healthcare coverage and needs, as well as your budget and preferences. Based on this information, they will recommend a plan that best meets your needs and budget. They will also help you understand the costs and benefits of each plan, including deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket limits.

Once you have selected a plan, your Medicare agent will help you enroll in the plan and guide you through the enrollment process. They will also provide ongoing support and assistance throughout the year, and help you make changes to your coverage as needed.

There are many misconceptions about Medicare agents, including the belief that they are affiliated with specific insurance companies or that they charge fees for their services. However, these beliefs are generally untrue.

Medicare agents are usually independent professionals who are not affiliated with any specific insurance company or plan. (Some agents, however, are employed by insurance companies to represent only their company) Instead, agents can be brokers and are contracted with multiple insurance carriers and offer a range of options to their clients. Additionally, Medicare agents do not charge fees for their services. They are paid by the insurance companies they work with, and their services are provided at no cost to their clients.

Finding a reputable Medicare agent in Broward County Florida can be challenging, especially if you are unsure where to start. However, there are several resources available to help you find a qualified and experienced agent.

First, you can ask for referrals from friends, family members, or healthcare providers who have worked with a Medicare agent in the past. You can also search for Medicare agents online, using websites like this one.

When selecting a Medicare agent, it is important to choose someone who is licensed and certified to sell Medicare plans in Florida. You should also look for an agent who has experience working with seniors and who is knowledgeable about the different Medicare plans and options available.

You have four main choices to search for help and make Medicare Decisions Easy. You can use a:

1) Captive insurance agent or

2) Medicare Insurance Broker or

Medicare has specific enrollment periods and deadlines that must be followed in order to avoid penalties and other issues. These enrollment periods include the Initial Enrollment Period, the Open Enrollment Period, and the Special Enrollment Period.

The Initial Enrollment Period is a seven-month period that begins three months before your 65th birthday and ends three months after your 65th birthday. During this period, you can enroll in Medicare Parts A and B. It is also the time you can enroll in either a Medicare Advantage plan (known as Part C) or a Supplement plan (also known as Medigap policy).

The Open Enrollment Period is a yearly period that runs from October 15th through December 7th. During this period, you can make changes to your Medicare coverage, including switching from Original Medicare to Medicare Advantage or changing your prescription drug coverage.

The Special Enrollment Period is a period of time during which you can enroll in or make changes to your Medicare coverage outside of the Initial Enrollment Period or Open Enrollment Period. This period is typically triggered by certain life events, such as moving to a new state or losing your employer-sponsored healthcare coverage.

A: No, Medicare agents do not charge fees for their services. They are paid by the insurance companies they work with, and their services are provided at no cost to their clients.

As agents we do not have to make a living by charging our clients. We are contracted with many insurance carriers who pay us directly if we help you enroll in an insurance plan.

Also, the government controls Medicare commissions to insurance agents, so there is no incentive to suggest one plan over another.  The customer does not pay any more or less premium by using an agent or going directly to the insurance company. Agents are compensated totally by the insurance carriers. We are independent advisors and consultants and do not work for an insurance company. We are able to provide you with the best advice as possible and any recommendations are made in your best interest. Many times, people call us for advice, and we recommend that the current plan is still the best option.

Don Rousseau

Hi, I’m Don Rousseau, and have been a licensed health insurance agent for almost a decade.  I come from a diverse business background. I started out as a teenager my father’s service station business and learned how to serve others by pumping gasoline and washing car windows.  I quickly learned the challenges of owning a family business.  After college, I joined a large corporation as an accountant and business analyst.  Following my corporate experience, I started several small businesses in various industries.

As an owner of a small businesses, I gained an appreciation of what it means to serve the customer. During this period, I also went back to school and became a commissioned minister.  I still serve in that capacity as a semi-retired lay minister for the Lutheran Church. Since I do not receive any remuneration as a church volunteer Lutheran lay minister, and I no longer had other business interests, I began looking for another occupation that will support my family.

When my son-in-law, who owns an insurance agency here in Florida, asked me if I wanted to sell insurance, I quickly said I didn’t want to sell anything. He quickly responded by saying, “good, I’m not looking for salesman, I’m looking for someone who wants to help others.” That’s me. Everything that I have done I pride myself as helping others.

So, in 2012 I became a licensed insurance agent. I started out as an independent agent, but when the Affordable Care Act was passed beginning in 2014 this changed the dynamics of individual health insurance. With Florida Blue being the largest health insurance company in Florida, I decided it would be best to go captive with Florida Blue. I projected that Obama Care would quickly change the Florida health insurance industry. And I was right.

Although I sold Medicare insurance policies through Florida Blue, as a captive agent I was limited to only one company for my customers. So, I decided to go independent. It was a great decision. Now I am able to offer competitive proposals and once again help others reach decisions that best fit their budgets and need.

I look forward to personally assisting anyone who is trying to make a Medicare decision. If you’re someone who will soon be turning 65 or someone considering a change during the Annual Enrollment Period, I want to help you in your Medicare search. Trying to decide which Medicare plan is right for you is an extremely important decision and help by a knowledgeable licensed Medicare Broker-Advisor is a valuable asset.

If you allow me to serve you, I promise you the best support and honest effort to put you first in any recommendation that I may make, and I look forward to being your personal health insurance broker, advisor, counselor, and agent.

I am committed to providing the best and most honest service to my clients.  I put you first.

My goal is to serve you and provide additional value to you wherever possible.

Sincerely,

Don

My Pledge to You as your Medicare Agent
