How To Purchase a Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement
Like many companies, you can purchase a policy directly thru their call center. The other way is to purchase your policy thru a licensed insurance agent. Which way should you go?
Believe it or not the answer is very simple. If you purchase directly from the carrier you receive no discount. If you purchase from a licensed insurance agency like Senior Benefit Services, Inc. you pay the same cost for your policy, but you get the added value of having your own dedicated agent. Why does this matter? The turnover in call centers is extremely high and the chances of you being able to talk with the same person you enrolled thru is very low. Working with Senior Benefit Services, Inc. allows you to have a dedicated agent who knows you, has a complete support team standing behind them to get any claim problems resolved, and provides service after the sale.
Speaking of service, each client of Senior Benefit Services gets an annual review of not only their medical insurance, but also their prescription drug coverage. This means that you will always be getting the most benefits for your premium dollars.
