Avoid This Common Medicare Mistake By Using EZ

The time has finally come for you to begin enjoying your retirement – and to finally begin reaping the rewards of all of those Medicare taxes you paid throughout your working life! But when you do enroll in Medicare, you’ll find that it doesn’t cover everything, so you’ll probably want to choose a Medicare Supplement Plan, which will help you save hundreds of dollars in medical expenses each year. That might be easier said than done, though: for first-time enrollees, searching through all the different Medicare Supplement Plans (there are 10 to choose from), can get overwhelming. In fact, 80% of people get so frustrated that they make this one common (and big) Medicare mistake, which ends up costing them in the long run.

Going With Familiar Companies

Oftentimes people will choose to buy a plan from a familiar company, which can cost them more money.

Let’s face it, when we have to make a decision, many of us choose something that we are familiar with because it’s just easier, and feels like a safer option; in fact, research shows that roughly 80% of consumers will go with a brand or company they are already familiar with. This is exactly what many Medicare beneficiaries end up doing when searching for a Medicare Supplement Plan. Instead of researching multiple insurance companies, many go with a familiar company, like the  health insurance company that they had an individual plan with. If they had a great experience with, let’s say, Blue Cross, they will lean towards choosing a Blue Cross Medicare Supplement Plan. Is Blue Cross a great company? Yes! Is it your best option? The answer to that question is only: maybe. 

Before you can really answer that question, you’ll need to check out all of your options –  limiting yourself to a familiar company will prevent you from determining which company has the plan that will offer you the most benefits for the best price. There are hundreds of insurance companies that sell Medicare Supplement Plans, so why settle for one you only think is offering a good plan? Going with a plan simply because you’re familiar with the insurance company could mean you’ll end up with a plan that is more expensive than others, or worse, with one that does not offer enough coverage for your needs. 

Avoid this Medicare mistake: compare plans from multiple insurance companies! And if that becomes too much to deal with, too confusing, or just downright annoying, let EZ do all that work for you!
