Speaking With An Informed Agent During Yearly Medicare Enrollment

Posted on

When you claim Medicare benefits, you can appreciate what they pay for and what they leave you to cover on your own. You may realize the importance of taking out an additional insurance policy to pay what regular Medicare cannot.

However, with all of the available plans, you may not know for sure which one to choose. You can select the best one during the annual Medicare enrollment period by consulting with an informed enrollment agent first.


One of the main reasons you may want to speak with an agent online, by phone, or in person involves finding a policy that will fit your budget. You might live on a rather tight budget each month and not have a lot of money to spend on premiums. You need to find a plan that you can easily pay for each month without the worry of it being canceled because of non-payment.

The agent you consult with can find out what your budget is for buying a supplemental policy. He or she can then assist you in finding and enrolling in this plan during the open Medicare enrollment period.

Accommodating the Deadline

Another benefit of consulting with an agent involves finding out exactly when the Medicare enrollment period is held. You may not be sure of what weeks and months it is open to you each year. You want to act promptly to avoid missing the deadline to enroll in or change your plan.

The agent can tell you if you are in the Medicare enrollment period or not and when the enrollment period will end. You can act promptly in your own best interests to find and enroll in a plan before the deadline expires.

Finding Suitable Coverage

Finally, the agent you consult with can assist you in selecting a plan that will offer the coverage you need. You may need the plan to pay not only for hospital stays and rehab after surgery. You also may need it to pay for additional services like rides to and from the doctor or meals to be delivered to you. You can enroll in a plan that offers most or all of the services you require.

An experienced agent can assist you during the annual Medicare enrollment period. This person can help you find a plan that fits your budget and offers the services you need. He or she can also make sure you enroll in a new plan before the Medicare enrollment period expires.
