When I decide on a plan, how do I proceed?
There are two ways you can purchase a Medicare plan:
a) directly from a company, or agent who works solely for a company.
b) from an independent agent contracted with a number of companies.
Either way you purchase a plan does not affect cost. Some of the major benefits of an independent broker are:
a) if you have a problem you have one person to call, not an 800 number with a different stranger every time.
b) an independent, like myself, can look out for your best interest and go over every option you have.
