Texas Medicare Insurance Plans Compare Top Insurers
Here’s why it’s almost impossible to do this on your own. Prices vary significantly. And the insurance company offering the cheapest Medigap plan for a 65-year-old female in Dallas (99.24) is NOT the cheapest in Houston ($121.18-per-month).
There are 20 or so different insurance companies offering Medicare Supplement insurance plans. Add to that the many Medicare Advantage plans. It’s enough to make your eyes glaze over.
Which is why we recommend you work with a local Texas Medicare insurance agent.

You can start your research online (as you are now doing). But, you won’t really find details about plans and costs. Everybody wants to tease you with information and get you to give them your personal contact information.
Some websites sell your information to one or more individuals (insurance agents). Get ready for a steady stream of phone calls.
Others will give your information to their own Call Center agents. What you need to determine is whether they are there to sell you just one company’s plan. Or, do they represent multiple companies. And, how many insurance companies?
You can use the Association’s directory to find local Medicare Agents. Just type in your Zip Code. Or, do a Google search for Medicare Agents Near Me. Be sure to ask them the key questions we suggest in our article.
