If you are inquiring about insurance, there are some things that you definitely need to ask your agent.
Medicare is just like any other insurance policy in this regard — never forget to investigate the coverage you will receive before signing up for anything. There are several questions we suggest you ask when shopping for Medicare plans.
Here they are:
Is This a Standardized Medicare Supplement?
Many Original Medicare recipients seek to lower their out-of-pocket insurance costs by investing in a Medicare Supplement. These plans are traditionally standardized, but some insurers will attempt to sell supplement policies that are not in line with the standard. Whenever shopping for Medicare Supplements, always ask your agent if the plan you are interested in purchasing is standardized based on federal rules.
Who is Responsible for Canceling?
If you purchase a Medicare plan that you are not happy with, you may wish to switch plans. If you go to switch plans but do not cancel your previous plan, you may be hit with a charge for your former plan. Sometimes people assume that their insurance agent will cancel their previous policy for them, but that is not always the case. Make sure to ask this question to clear things up before you sign on with a new policy provider.
How Can I Contact You or the Insurance Provider?
You never know when you will need to get in touch with your insurance agent or the insurance company that provides you with coverage. That’s why you should always ask about the best ways to contact whoever you need to speak to. Do this before signing up for coverage so you have the information available as soon as possible. This ensures that you won’t have issues reaching the necessary point of contact when you need help.
