Here are some factors to consider when deciding whether to work with a remote Medicare agent:
  1. Convenience: Remote agents can offer the convenience of working with them from the comfort of your home, over the phone, or online. They are often available outside of traditional business hours, making it easier to contact them when you need assistance.
  2. More Options: While many local agents can only quote 1-2 Medicare options, most remote agents work with multiple insurance carriers, helping you shop the marketplace and compare options.
  3. Experience: Remote Medicare agents have a depth of knowledge and experience that local agents can't compete with. Most local insurance agents are focused on property and life insurance. Although local agents may offer Medicare products, they don't sell enough to gain expert-level knowledge and experience. 
  4. Technology: Remote Medicare agents leverage technology to streamline the insurance quoting and application process, saving you time and frustration.
The decision to work with a remote Medicare agent is a choice that should be made with careful consideration. Ultimately, the right choice depends on finding the perfect balance between convenience and the expertise you seek in navigating the complex world of Medicare insurance.
