Consumers seeking Medicare Supplement agents who can compare coverages and offer prices have an enhanced online directory offered by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance.
“Today we launch a significantly enhanced and improved our Find A Local Medicare Supplement Agent online directory designed to help consumers find area Medigap specialists,” predicts Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI). The organization conducts industry research and supports insurance professionals who market Medicare-related products.
The Association’s online directory is the nation’s foremost resource where consumers can find local professionals. “We don’t require consumers to enter any personal information,” Slome notes. “You can simply enter your Zip Code and see information on agents who offer Medicare Supplement insurance. You get to see their contact information and decide who, if anyone, you want to contact.”
The free service offered by the Association already features hundreds of Medicare Supplement insurance agents and brokers. “We share their contact information, it is still up to the consumer to do their due diligence and comparison shopping,” Slome adds. The national Medicare Supplement expert notes that some Medigap agents only offer coverage from one company while others are brokers and can represent and offer insurance coverage from multiple Medicare Supplement insurers.
Insurance agents who want to be listed pay a nominal fee to the Association for the listing to support the organization’s ongoing consumer and insurance agent awareness and educational efforts.

Slome also serves as director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance and the National Advisory Center for Short-Term Care Information.
