A new and improved version of the nation’s leading online directory enabling consumers to connect with local Medicare Supplement insurance agents is being relaunched by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance.
“Nearly 30,000 consumers have used our directory of agents, the largest independent resource for finding agents who specialize in Medicare solutions,” explains declares Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance. “Following this year’s Medicare Open Enrollment period, we decided to make enhancements based on both consumer and agent input.”
The new directory will allow consumers to enter their Zip Code to retrieve a listing of agents based on proximity. “Our prior system listed all agents within a state which became cumbersome for larger states like Florida and California,” Slome shares. “The new system will be far easier for consumers to use.”
Insurance agents who offer Medicare supplement as well as other Medicare products will be able to list themselves on the directory. “There will be a nominal charge that will support our continuing consumer advocacy and education efforts,” Slome says. “We also invest significantly in insurance agent education conducting free Medigap conferences for agents and offering an extensive library of filmed workshops that are all available at no charge.”
Insurance agents who learn more about being listed or want to be notified when listings can be added should visit the Association’s website at http://medicaresupp.org/agent-center/medicare-supplement-agent-directory-get-listed-now/ or can Email Jesse Slome firstname.lastname@example.org. The directory is expected to relaunch around February 20, 2017 and agents initially will be offered a discounted opportunity to list under one or more Zip Codes.
The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance is based in Westlake Village (Los Angeles) California. The organization produces the annual industry conference for the Med Supp industry which will take place April 11-13, 2017 in Dallas, TX.
