Sell Medicare Plans Over the Phone - Telesales for Medicare Plans

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Thu, Mar 30, 2023 @ 04:32 PM

Medicare Phone Sales Opportunity-1

The Medicare market presents a significant phone sales opportunity for insurance agents. Here are some reasons why:

Large and growing market:
According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, more than 61 million people were enrolled in Medicare in 2020, and this number is expected to grow in the coming years as the baby boomer generation reaches retirement age.

High demand for supplemental coverage:
Medicare covers many medical expenses, but there are still gaps in coverage that can leave beneficiaries with significant out-of-pocket costs. As a result, there is a high demand for supplemental insurance coverage, such as Medicare Advantage plans, Medigap policies, and prescription drug plans.

Convenience for beneficiaries:
Many beneficiaries prefer the convenience of purchasing insurance over the phone, as it allows them to compare plans and enroll from the comfort of their own homes.

Opportunity for cross-selling:
Selling Medicare insurance over the phone can also provide an opportunity to cross-sell other insurance products, such as life insurance, long-term care insurance, and annuities.

Compliance:
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has strict rules and regulations governing the marketing and sale of Medicare insurance products, including specific requirements for phone sales. However, with proper training and compliance procedures in place, agents can successfully navigate these regulations and grow their business.

PSM has teamed up with YourMedicare ℠ to bring you a revolutionary new Medicare enrollment platform to write more Medicare business. With our all-inclusive platform, you can sell Medicare Advantage and Part D plans on your terms.

Quote and enroll your clients online with our free platforms - View details

In summary, the Medicare market presents a significant phone sales opportunity for insurance agents, with a large and growing market, high demand for supplemental coverage, convenience for beneficiaries, opportunity for cross-selling, and compliance regulations in place to ensure ethical and responsible sales practices.
