Medicare Quote Honesty
People ask for Medicare quotes from insurance agents and companies, but people really don’t know what they are asking for or what they should be looking for. It’s not your fault. You only enroll in Medicare once in a lifetime, so its hard to be an expert. Here are some tips when you are asking for a Medicare quote.
Medicare Part D Quote
How do you know that the agent is showing all the Medicare Part D plans? Make sure she is showing you the Part D plans on the Medicare.gov website. There will be a number indicating how many plans are available in your state. When she proceeds to the page with the quote, all the plans will be listed in order of cost to you beginning with the least. Make sure she enters ALL of your medications and they appear on the medication list. That is how you know that you have a real Part D quote.
Medicare Part C Quote
How do you know that the agent is showing all the Medicare Part C plans? Again there will be a number on the Medicare.gov quoting mechanism indicating the total number of plans in your area. When you proceed to the list, they will be listed in the order of the plan most favorable to you in terms of the medications listed. It may or may not be the best plan when looking at the medical side.
Medicare Supplement Quote
How do you know that the agent is showing you all the Medicare supplements? You see the usual companies, like United Health Care, Aetna, and Blue Cross. What you should also see is a number of lesser known companies. Many of those companies will be the lower cost plans. Some agents don’t include the lower price plans because they get paid less. If you see a number of unfamiliar names, that is good. You are probably seeing a complete list of supplements
