Los Angeles, CA, August 31, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- A record 45 million American who have Medicare prescription drug coverage will shortly have just 53 days to evaluate their options for 2020 coverage according to the Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI).
"Comparing 2020 Medicare drug and plan options will be made significantly more difficult and chaotic during Medicare Annual Enrollment because just before Open Enrollment begins (October 15, 2019) Medicare is shutting down their current online plan comparison system and replacing it with a new one," explains Jesse Slome, AAMSI's director. "It will be like starting from scratch for millions and I predict an onslaught of individuals frantically seeking professional advice to help them make this most important health care decision."
The Association hosts the national online directory where consumers can find local Medicare insurance professionals across all 50 states. Access to the Zip Code-based look-up is free for consumers and 100 percent confidential.
The Association is offering a 33 percent discount for agents who add their listing between now and the end of Labor Day (Monday, September 2). Simply enter the discount code labor19 during Step 2 of the listing process. To learn more about adding a listing visit the Association's website at www.medicaresupp.org/agent-sign-up.
"I predict this year's Annual Enrollment Period, or Open Enrollment as many still call it, will be the busiest ever and we will be advising consumers to start the process early to avoid finding insurance professionals who are booked solid or toll free numbers that ring busy," Slome notes.
The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance is an advocacy and informational organization that conducts the national Medigap industry conference, hosts the nation's leading Find A Local Medicare Agent online directory, conducts and publishes studies and supports insurance professionals who offer Medigap coverage.
