Need help choosing a Medicare plan?
Say hello to a Licensed Medicare Advisor.

With so many Medicare plans out there, you may not be sure where to start. From understanding Original Medicare — Parts A and B — to picking a prescription drug or Medicare Advantage plan, there’s a lot to consider.

But the good news? You can get free guidance from a Licensed Medicare Advisor. These advisors work with you to understand your Medicare options and help you make a decision that’s good for your health — and easy on your wallet.

Take a look at four reasons why a Licensed Medicare Advisor can save you time and make applying for Medicare a whole lot easier.   

1) A helpful hand with basic Medicare enrollment.

Before you enroll in any Medicare supplement plans, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services require that you have Medicare Parts A and B. Just completing that first step can be tricky.

Your Licensed Medicare Advisor will work with you to make sure your initial Medicare application is all set so you don’t have any hurdles later on.

2) Personalized guidance to help you find the right fit plan.

Your Licensed Medicare Advisor will meet with you one-on-one to better understand your needs, including your health history, hospitals or doctors you like, your current health network, and any prescription drug use. From there, the advisor will suggest plans and give you a better idea of costs.

If you’re enrolling at the same time as your spouse, the advisor will work with you both to suggest personalized products that work well together.

3) Help when you need it most.

One of the best parts of working with Licensed Medicare Advisors is that they’re always available to help. If there are changes in benefits or your health status, your advisor can review your plan details and give you updates to consider.  

Plus, if there are any issues during the enrollment process, the advisor can step in and help.

4) E
xpert, up-to-date advice.

Licensed Medicare Advisors are required to complete training and testing each year. That means they stay up-to-date on Medicare rules and regulations, plan details, and important changes. Advisors can easily pass this information on to you — saving you hours of time researching.

It’s best to reach out to a Licensed Medicare Advisor six to nine months before your eligibility begins. That will give you enough time to weigh your options and choose the perfect Medicare plan for you.

Once you’ve formed that relationship, each year during the Annual Enrollment Period, your Licensed Medicare Advisor can review your coverage with you and talk through any changes that you may need.
