Buyer beware: Choose local When it comes to selecting Medicare benefits.

Updated: Sep 25, 2022

Samantha Anderson here. When you are looking to choose a Medicare plan or review your current selections, make sure you work with your local agent. A local agent can help compare plans and ensure the doctors you see are in the plan. Also, they can ensure your prescriptions are covered making sure you are covered. As a local agent focused against the Minnesota market place, I understand the benefit options that are exclusively available in the area. It's the agents job to take the guesswork out of selecting a plan that is best for you.


So when you start to see the TV commercials with the celebrities and hear on the radio to call the 1-800 number, please understand they are not local and might not get you the best coverage based on where you live. Always work with your local agent.


As a local Minnesota based agent, I understand that Medicare is not one-size-fits-all. I work with you to understand your circumstances and needs To find the best plan for you.
