Medicare’s Annual Enrollment or Election Period ends in just two weeks on December 7 warns the head of the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance.
“Millions of Americans have waited until the final days which could result in a costly mistake,” suggests Jesse Slome, director of the Medicare Supplement insurance organization. “Picking your best Medicare plan option for 2021 is not always a simple task. You want to leave yourself enough time to get the information necessary to make an informed decision.”
The Association director shared the information as part of a discussion with agents selling Medicare insurance. “We know many people wait until the last minute, so get ready for the final days deluge of calls and emails from consumers wanting to book appointments,” he advised.
Slome reported an increase in consumers utilizing the organization’s online directory of Medicare agents. “Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period is always a key time when consumers look for a local insurance agent. If you are multi-lingual, this is something you can and probably should mention as part of your listing,” he advised.
