Medicare Broker vs Agent—What’s the difference?

Licensed Medicare Broker

When you’re considering your Medicare options there is a lot to think about. Before you dive into plans and types of Medicare, your first decision should be to work with a Medicare Broker. Here’s why:

Whether you’re working with an agent or a broker, the up-front cost to you is the same. The difference is going to be in the options they can show you and the savings in the long term.

Agents typically represent one company. They can show you options from that one provider but they don’t have prices and comparisons from all the competition.

A Medicare Broker, on the other hand, is an independent agent. They represent all the top-rated insurance carriers and have knowledge of all the different plans that are out there. They pick and choose which plans to sell based only on your budget and needs. When you work with a Medicare Broker like Dee, you can have peace of mind knowing you’re being shown all the programs and plans that fit for you.

Consulting with a Medicare Broker before enrolling in a plan can save you thousands in the long run by helping you select the most appropriate provider and plan.

Medicare is highly customizable. If you have any questions about which plan is right for you, don’t hesitate to reach out to Dee for a consultation. Dee takes the time to understand your situation and your needs and will find a plan that works for you.
