HOW LONG MATTERS: Sounds obvious but it’s something few consumers ever ask. Medicare is complicated for you. It’s also complicated for insurance agents. Learning Medicare plan options is not something you can learn overnight. That’s not to say that someone new to the business can’t be a valuable resource. They can be. But you should know how long they have been licensed to sell Medicare insurance.
HOW MANY MATTERS: Insurance professionals are generally referred to as ‘agents’. But there is a difference between those who are agents and those who are brokers. Agents typically refers to someone who is able to sell one specific insurance company’s policies. A broker can sell plans from multiple companies. Some brokers sell for just a few plans. Others will sell for many (10 or more). They will have a favorites, But you will benefit if you know more about the insurance agent you choose to work with. You want them selling you what’s best for you (not what’s just best for them).
HOW MUCH MATTERS: A good agent know how to sell. That’s how they earn their living. So, why ask how what percentage of their business is focused on Medicare insurance? Because there will be a difference. An agent or broker who solely focuses on Medicare will generally have a deeper knowledge about the topic and the products and solutions. Someone who focuses say 50 percent while they also sell other products simply may not have the expertise you are looking for.
