Seniors Increasingly Use Association Directory To Find Local Medicare Insurance Agents

LOS ANGELES - March 6, 2024 - PRLog -- Nearly 10,000 advertisements for Medicare coverage are televised daily according to the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance. The increased exposure is resulting in increased efforts by seniors to find local Medicare insurance professionals.

"Medicare is a national program but there are several issues that seniors increasingly face," explains Jesse Slome, director of the Medicare advocacy organization. "First of all, Medicare plan options are local and can vary significantly from one area to another. Seniors are increasingly aware of the importance of finding a local Medicare insurance professional who can give them advice and help them make better decisions."

Many of those 10,000 daily television ads focus on Medicare Advantage plans Slome adds. "These can be excellent options for many but definitely not for all," the Medicare insurance expert explains. "For example, the ads don't cite a report that Medicare Advantage plans fully or partially denied authorization for more than 2 million claims in a single recent year.  But 82 percent of those were overturned after an appeal.

Slome explained that a local insurance professional will often be able to share experiences of their other clients. "The choice of who you work with is the most important first step," Slome suggests. "There are insurance agents who basically represent a single company. There are Call Centers who have all different levels of experience and plan access. And, finally, there are brokers who typically represent multiple companies and may offer both Medigap as well as Medicare Advantage plans available in your particular area."

The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance makes available the leading national online directory listing local Medicare insurance agents near me. Access is free and private at "This is important for seniors who don't want their name added to spam phone call registries," Slome points out.

The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance ( advocates for the importance of educated consumers and supports insurance professionals who market Medicare insurance plans. Slome is also director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. The national organizations are headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
