The Medicare Opportunity
There’s no question the wealth being created by Medicare is catching a lot of attention. Agents are flocking to create a book of renewal business that can provide steady income. Medicare shops are popping up all over the place.
As the cost of living increases so does the income opportunity with Medicare. Each year the Center for Medicare and Medicaid releases new maximum income levels for writing Medicare Advantage policies (the rate most carriers pay). In 2022 that rate has been raised to:
$573 for new to Medicare enrollees and
$287 for renewals and moving clients to a new plan.
That $287/ year renews for as long as your client stays with you.
The best part is there are no health qualifications to join a Medicare Advantage plan. This means despite your client’s health they can be written with a plan that will still pay you a healthy commission while they often will have to pay no, or little additional premium.
To reach $100,000 of renewable annual income you only have to maintain a book of 349 Medicare Advantage clients. Reaching a six-figure income has never been easier. Although it’s a tough road, it’s completely possible in your first year of production. That’s only an average of 30 policies per month. Driven new agents can realistically expect 100 applications in the prime Medicare Advantage season from October 15th – the end of March. We have new agents produce 30 policies/ month in months outside of this busy season. Think about it, that’s only one policy per day on average.
This busy Medicare Advantage season is made up of two primary seasons AEP (the Annual Election Period) where clients make their elections from October 15th through December 7th. The second is OEP (the Open Enrollment Period) from January through March where clients with an existing Medicare Advantage plan are able to make a change to their existing coverage.
Medicare Supplement plans pay a percentage of premium for a certain amount of years depending on the carrier and state the plan is written in.Generally commission is around the 20% range for around 5 years, until it starts to taper off. The average med supp premium tends to be around $1,400/ year. You can push the window of top level premium out by rewriting Medicare Supplement clients as their rates go up.
All of this means you can create a healthy renewable source of income that can grow year after year.
As the business grows it’s more important than ever for agents to be aware of where they place their business.
Warning! Medicare at DigitalBGA is Different…
Digital BGA is selective in which agents (and agencies) we invite to be part of our business. We invite agents that have committed to taking their Medicare business seriously. We do not invite everyone that asks to join our team.
Our approach is admittedly a little different.
We believe that top producing agents thrive on being surrounded by other top producing agents.
Why are we so selective?
Like we mention above, part of the reason is to encourage top producers. The other reason is because Medicare is not for everyone. There are many reasons people want to get into Medicare. Many believe it is easier to sell than other insurance products. Some believe they’ll become rich quick. Both reasons are short sighted.
It’s a lot of work to learn the Medicare business and regardless of the amount of help you’re offered, you will need to put in the effort. Clients may need Medicare, but it can be a hard conversation getting someone to open up about their health history. Do not check your sales skills at the door.
