Compare Medicare insurance plans and costs
 

To help Medicare eligible seniors the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance has expanded the organization's online directory listing local Medicare insurance agents.

"Medicare is enormously complex and finding the best option and cost can be overwhelming," explains Jesse Slome, director of the national organization.  Slome notes that Medicare's Annual Election Period (AEP) begins October 15th.

"Medicare AEP is a peak decision time for millions who are already on Medicare," Slome notes.  "In addition some 11,000 individuals turn 65 every day and become eligible for Medicare and face having to chose what coverage they want." 

According to the Association's 2020 Medicare Insurance Price Index costs can vary significantly.  "In Atlanta, a 65-year-old woman might pay as little as $102-monthly for a Medigap Plan G coverage," Slome notes.  "Or she could pay as much as $244-monthly for virtually identical insurance coverage."

"It's logical to think that buying direct from an insurer is going to be better and that it will save you money," Slome explains.  "But that's simply not true.  A local Medicare insurance agent can offer you the identical plan and costs, if any.  More important, they can help you learn about and evaluate the pros and cons of all the options in your area."

The Association makes available a free online directory of local Medicare insurance agents who offer Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan options.  Some 1,000 independent Medicare insurance agents can be found using the Zip Code-based service that is free and completely private.

The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI) is a national organization based in Los Angeles, CA.  AAMSI advocates for the importance of planning and supports insurance professionals who offer Medicare plan options.  For more information, visit the organization's website at www.medicaresupp.org or call 818-597-3205.

Jesse Slome is director of the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance.  He also directs the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.  Visit their website to get long-term care insurance quotes.  To find local Medicare insurance agents visit the American Association for Medicare Supplement website.
