This may seem easier than it really is. Unfortunately, most agents only represent a very small number of companies or may be even just one. And they will try their hardest to sell you on how great that company is.
This is an extreme disservice to the customer. You need to find an agent who present s ALL your options and present them in an unbiased and transparent manner. A good agent/broker will communicate the pros and cons of each type of coverage, as well as, the difference between carriers. You need to find someone who does not have a “horse in the race”.
You need to find an agent who is willing to listen and completely answer all your Medicare questions because it can be very confusing and there is a ton of misinformation out there.
A good agent will promptly respond to phone calls, emails or texts. If it take a couple of days for them to get back to you, can you imagine what it will be like after the sale? You will never be able to get them on the phone again. You will feel stranded.
The best way to find someone like I’m describing is to ask friends and family and then go online and look them up. Some might have reviews that you might find helpful. The best way is to call them and speak to them. Ask them questions and see how they respond. If your BS meter goes up, trust your gut and do not work that person or organization.
Just like than anything, it will require some work on your part.
