Choosing an Independent Insurance Agent for Medicare

September 12, 2022

An independent insurance agent can assess your personal situation and provide you with a Medicare plan from various companies that meets your needs. They offer an unbiased opinion and more personalized service.

Here are 9 things you should consider when deciding whether you would like to work with an independent insurance agent:

1. Expert Knowledge

When you require legal advice, you contact a lawyer. When a health issue arises, you visit your doctor. When you need assistance with your Medicare insurance coverage, why not rely on an industry expert? They have the knowledge and experience you may need to make the absolute best health insurance decisions for you and your family.

2. Time and Money Savings

Insurance companies that promise to drastically reduce your rates in minutes may seem cost-effective at first, but they will not save you time and money in the long run. By working with an independent insurance agent, you can save a great deal of time, some money, and headaches down the road. Instead of providing an instant rate quote, independent insurance agents ask questions to ensure that the coverage they design will adequately protect you when you need it.

3. Exceptional Customer Service

If you have questions related to your insurance coverage, would you rather reach an automated recording or an actual person who can help you? Independent insurance agencies like Tepsick Insurance, can come to you or have you visit the office at times that are most convenient for you. Instead of only being there for you 9-to-5, Monday through Friday like most companies, our agents are available to return your phone calls 7 days a week.

4. A One-Stop Shop

At our independent insurance agency, you can take care of all your Medicare coverage needs at once, including but not limited to medical, dental and vision. This limits the number of different companies you deal with and helps you stay organized. We are truly a one-stop-shop for all your Medicare insurance needs.

5. Easy Understanding

Independent insurance agents understand that Medicare insurance can seem complicated and confusing, especially when you do not deal with it on a daily basis. For this reason, your independent insurance agent will work to ensure that you fully understand your coverage and explain Medicare in easy-to-understand language.

6. A Great Reputation

Reputation plays a crucial role in finding a company you can trust, and many independent insurance agencies take pride in the years they have spent serving their local communities. Yvonne Tepsick is licensed in 21 states and has a well-established reputation in the community, which can also help you feel confident about Tepsick Insurance assisting you.

7. A Personal Shopping Experience

Working with an independent insurance agent is similar to having a personal shopper. Just like a real estate agent sorts through properties to help you find your ideal home, an independent insurance agent reviews many different insurance companies’ rates and coverage options to help secure policies that best suit your needs. Contrary to popular belief, this does not come at an additional cost to you as independent insurance agents do not add extra costs to insurance companies’ rates. This service is provided for free.

8. Local Knowledge

As local residents, many independent insurance agents have lived in your area for years and use their knowledge of the community to help you make informed decisions that reduce your risks. Tepsick Insurance agents will review your insurance plans annually, and make sure it is still working for you – free of charge. They are your consultants for a lifetime.

9. Protection and Peace of Mind

Above all, working with an independent insurance agent will provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that when you save money on your health insurance, it won’t come at the expense of comprehensive coverage. When it comes to your protection, relying on an independent insurance agent you can trust is a great place to start.
