As you go through the process of learning about Medicare and choosing a Medicare plan, there are different people you can talk to about your options.
It is an excellent idea to work with a Medicare agent who represents several different Medicare Supplement carriers. This agent will be able to focus on what is right for you.
A type of Medicare agent that you want to avoid is called a "Captive Agent". A Captive Agent only represents one insurance carrier and usually can only offer one plan. They are almost always directly employed by an insurance company.
