From October 15th - December 7th, you have the ability to increase your income dramatically.
Many agents write 1/3 - 1/2 of their annual Medicare Supplement business in the 4th quarter every year. Do you? Why does this happen? Additional money for the holidays?
More likely it is because of the constant Medicare Advantage Annual Election period buzz that begins in September and continues unabated until December. Tens of millions of direct mail pieces, TV, radio and print ads all help stir up the crowds.
Agents who write Medicare Supplement can capitalize on all of this free marketing by reaching out to their clients and prospects. This is an opportune time for agents to reassess their current clients' Medicare Supplement plans to be sure they still have the best plan for their needs, AND, to assist prospects with their needs.
Medicare Supplement Agent Benefits
Medicare Supplement Client Benefits
Medicare Supplement plans can NEVER be cancelled or changed by anyone other than the policy holder, although rates can change annually.
Medicare Supplement plans offer the freedom to select any doctor anywhere. The insurance company does not decide which doctors your clients must use.
Medicare Supplement plans limit the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by policy holders.
Medicare Advantage plans require policy holders to enroll each year and they receive that year's benefits, providers and cost.
