Why Agents Should Sell Dental Vision and Hearing Plans

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Thu, Jun 01, 2023 @ 04:08 PM

Why Sell DVH


Why Agents Should Sell Dental Vision and Hearing (DVH)

Many of your potential clients may think they are safe from the possible expenses of Dental, Vision, and Hearing services since they have Original Medicare (Parts A &B) or even a Medicare Advantage Plan.

While Original Medicare itself offers medical coverage, there are certain gaps that can leave your clients vulnerable to high out-of-pocket expenses. Medicare Advantage plans provides some coverage but it’s not comprehensive.

When you offer ancillary products like DVH insurance to your clients, you help protect them from the risk of those expenses and bring them peace of mind knowing that they have more complete coverage and gives you an opportunity to earn more commissions.



Shortcomings in Medicare and Medicare Advantage:

As people age, they’re more likely to experience problems with their eyes, ears, and teeth. Explaining the cost of common issues regarding those areas can really highlight the importance of a DVH plan.

Many people overestimate the coverage Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage provides. By exposing coverage gaps and helping your clients fill them, you’ve helped them understand the coverage better, and helped them avoid what could have eventually been a rude awakening.


Finding DVH Prospects:

You shouldn’t have to look far.

You likely already have many clients who either don’t have a DVH plan or could benefit from changing DVH plans. Remember, you can sell DVH plans all year long.

Keeping in touch with your beneficiaries will provide opportunities to asses any gaps in their coverage. Since DVH plans can be sold all year long, you may also want to compare plans for clients that may already have it, to see if they could benefit from a change.

This proactive approach demonstrates your commitment to comprehensive coverage and positions you as a trusted advisor in their healthcare journey.



It’s hard to find a reason not to offer Dental, Vision & Hearing plans to your prospects that may need one. DVH policies don’t require underwriting, are easy to explain to clients, and can be sold all year round. Cross-marketing DVH is a no-brainer, and a win-win for everyone.

As a licensed insurance agent, you want to offer more than basic medical coverage. By offering DVH insurance to your senior clients, you address their unmet needs, promote holistic healthcare, and provide financial security.

By taking this proactive approach, you demonstrate your commitment to their well-being, build stronger client relationships, and position yourself as a knowledgeable and caring agent. This isn’t just good for your clients but is good for your business as well.

Thanks for watching, and happy selling.

5 Reasons to Sell Final Expense Plans

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Thu, Jun 01, 2023 @ 09:13 AM

5 reasons to sell final expense life insurance

In today’s financial environment, it can be difficult to predict how much things will cost down the road, especially someone’s end-of-life expenses. Help your clients take the guesswork out with a final expense life insurance plan. With a final expense plan, your clients can find relief knowing that they will not leave their loved ones with a financial burden during an already difficult time.

There are several compelling reasons to consider selling final expense insurance:

  1. Targeted market: Final expense insurance caters to a specific market segment of individuals who may not qualify for or afford traditional life insurance policies. This niche market provides an opportunity to serve a unique clientele and address their specific needs.

  2. Fulfilling a critical need: Final expense insurance helps individuals and their families plan for the financial obligations associated with funerals, burials, and related expenses. By selling this type of insurance, you can assist clients in ensuring that their loved ones are not burdened with significant costs during a difficult time.

  3. Simplicity and accessibility: Final expense insurance policies are typically easier to understand and obtain compared to complex life insurance products. They often involve simplified underwriting processes, making them more accessible to a wider range of customers. This simplicity can be appealing to individuals who want straightforward coverage without extensive paperwork or medical examinations.

  4. Emotional support: Selling final expense insurance allows you to provide emotional support to clients and their families. By addressing end-of-life expenses, you help alleviate the stress and uncertainty associated with funeral planning. This support can foster trust and build long-term relationships with clients.

  5. Financial stability: Final expense insurance provides a predictable and stable income stream for insurance agents. As the need for final expense coverage persists, it can serve as a consistent revenue source. By building a client base and nurturing relationships, you can establish a reliable book of business over time.

It's important to approach the sale of final expense insurance ethically and responsibly, ensuring that you fully understand the product, its features, and the specific needs of your clients. Complying with industry regulations and providing transparent information to customers is crucial to building trust and maintaining professional integrity.
