How to Find an Illinois Medicare Agent: Five Questions to Ask

Finding the right Medicare coverage every year can be a time consuming and overwhelming experience. Choosing the wrong plan can be a costly mistake. When you work with a local, licensed Medicare agent they can help you narrow your options to find the right plan to fit your individual needs.

Here are five questions to ask to help you find the agent that is right for you:

1. Which types of insurance plans do you sell?

Ask the agent if they sell both Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans, as well as Part D Prescription Drug plans. Ideally you want to choose an agent who represents a variety of local and national insurance carriers who offer plans in your area. This ensures they can offer you a variety of options increasing the likelihood of finding a plan well suited to your needs.

2. Are you licensed to sell insurance in my state?

The agent you choose to work with should be licensed to sell Medicare in your state. This means they have taken a state licensing exam and have met annual continuing education requirements. This ensures they are up to date on all of Medicare’s rules and regulations which can change every year.

3. How much experience do you have?

You should look for an agent who has experience selling different types of Medicare plans in your state. Plan availability, benefits, rules, and exceptions can vary from state to state. This can be overwhelming to navigate on your own. An experienced agent will understand the complexities involved and can help guide you to the right coverage.

4. What information should I bring when we meet?

Your agent will ask you to come to your first meeting prepared with certain information. This includes a list of your doctors, your medications and dosages, your preferred hospitals, and pharmacies. You will discuss any chronic health conditions and treatments, how often you travel out of the area, and your budget. This will help the agent gauge your needs and preferences in order to find the Medicare coverage that best matches your individual situation.

5. After I am enrolled, can I contact you with questions or issues?

There are several reasons why you want to work with an agent who offers ongoing customer service and support throughout the year. They can assist with Issues or questions that arise with your existing coverage. If your circumstances change mid-year they can determine if you qualify for a special enrollment period and can help you change plans.

When you form a relationship with a local Medicare agent, you will have access to a trusted advisor who can provide education, guidance, and support over many years.
