One is the loneliest number.
Enrolling in Medicare is a great turning point in, life but the whole process can get a bit confusing. To expedite this process of first enrolling in Medicare and then filling the gaps with a supplemental insurance plan, we recommend that what ever you do, don’t try it alone.
Many people 65 and older have successfully tracked down a sufficient Medigap policy all on their own, but whether or not they found the best, most affordable plan is debatable. The truth is, without access to all Medigap rates and quotes, a better plan could be lurking right under your nose and you’d never know. That is precisely why it is better to seek consultation when finding a senior health insurance plan.
There are people that are well versed in Medicare and Medicare Supplement Insurance who will take you through the enrollment process step by step. These people are known as Medicare Supplement Specialists or senior health insurance agents. There are many people in the insurance industry, but it is important to find someone who exclusively works with Medicare and Medicare Supplements. They will have the most up-to-date information on all the plan options, changes in coverage, etc.
Also, if you find an agent, try to gauge if they are “in it for the long haul” so to speak. Sometimes Medigap rates will fluctuate year to year and a good agent will monitor those changes to ensure that you are still receiving the lowest rate.
