The 2020 Open Enrollment season for healthcare coverage is here! Finding the best Medicare health plan might seem like a daunting task, but a Medicare broker can help. Specialized Medicare insurance brokers serve as navigators to help you choose the right plan for you, based upon your specific needs.
Medicare brokers complete a rigorous and comprehensive annual training to meet guidelines from both the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the insurance company issuing the plan. They will ensure the plan covers your doctors, hospitals, and prescription medications before enrollment. After an individual has enrolled, the broker can be a liaison between you and the insurance company in addressing customer service issues and concerns that may come up during the year.

How to Find a Medicare Broker
Now, you might be asking yourself, “How do I find a Medicare broker?” The easiest and most reliable way is to ask a friend. If your friend works with a broker, you can get an honest opinion about their experience. However, if you don’t know anyone that has used a broker, local internet searches and calling the local State Health Insurance Assistance Program office are great ways to find a broker in your area.
When choosing a Medicare broker, make sure they are available to help provide support even after enrolling in your Medicare plan. The best Medicare brokers are there to help you understand and navigate your health benefits continually.
