Suggested Questions To Ask A Medigap Insurance Agent

For many people selecting the right Medicare insurance policy can be confusing.   There’s Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, Part D … and then comparing the various plans and options.    You have a friend or relative living nearby and they love their plan.  But, that plan may not be available to you.  And, then there’s the price you pay for Medigap insurance which can vary based on your Zip Code.

That’s why the Association believes that your first important choice is finding a professional to work with.   They can be local or you can work with them over the phone.  But, you want someone who is committed to explaining your options and helping you make a decision that’s best suited to your needs – your health preferences – and, of course, your budget.

Medicare insurance agents do not charge for their assistance.  They earn their living by being paid a commission.  The commission is built into the Medigap insurance policy.  It is paid to them by the insurance company.

Here are a few key questions you might want to ask when first speaking to a Medicare insurance agent:

DO YOU REPRESENT ONE MEDIGAP COMPANY – or MULTIPLE COMPANIES?  Some agents only offer Medicare Supplement insurance from one company.  Others, who are typically referred to as brokers, can offer policies from multiple companies.   The Association doesn’t recommend one over the other (we love them all equally!).  But, you should know this important piece of information.  Here’s what you should ask: “how many Medicare insurance companies are you appointed to sell?”  Appointed is industry jargon that means they can actually sell you a policy from a specific company.  Agents can only earn a commission from companies they are appointed with.

ASK ABOUT THE INSURANCE COMPANY’S HISTORY OF RATE INCREASES?  The lowest price for Medicare Supplement insurance may seem attractive.  But the rates insurers charge you can change.  That’s why it’s important to ask the agent or broker about the company’s recent record of rate increases.  A good agent will have no problem sharing this information (hint, that’s a good way to ascertain a good agent).

We thank you for taking the time to read this information. If you have questions, we urge you to use the Association’s FIND AN AGENT look-up to find Medicare insurance agents in your area.   Some consumers query several agents to evaluate their responses and willingness to help.  That is a perfectly fine way to begin your process of getting information.
