Online Shopping is Easier Than Ever for Medicare Supplement Insurance!

By: Derrick Johnson


Changes in the senior insurance market are taking place due to modern technology. Retirees are going online prior to making a purchase to research products. Making a decision in a no pressure environement is the goal for most seniors.
Medigap Insurance or Medicare Supplemental Insurance is a easy product for seniors to understand. In the early 1990's these policies were standardized by the government. A specific letter has been assigned to each Medigap plan. Assigned the letters A-L, there are 12 options. Therefore, all plans with the same letter do the same thing.
Seniors were considered for many years to lack the confidence and education to make financial decisions without assistance. This stereotype was never accurate but many retirees believed it. This is no longer true.
As the Internet began to come of age, baby boomers began aging into Medicare and a more educated and confident senior citizen was born. Today, seniors are offended by the fact that some people consider them "elderly" and uneducated. Todays seniors have chosen to research before making a purchase and the Internet is the tool of choice for them to do this.
Medicare Supplement products are a good product for seniors to educate themselves via the Internet. Todays search engines provided more than enough information to learn about this simple product. The Internet offers a no pressure environment for researching Medigap plans.
Although the days of the insurance agent hawking his products while drinking a cup of coffee at the seniors kitchen table may be over, the need for an educated advisor are certainly not over. Because of the world we live in today, changes in the Medicare and Medigap market take place frequently and rapidly. A good senior advisor will understand the needs of the more educated senior and listen to their questions all the while providing them with information on upcoming changes that the client may be unaware of.
As technology continues to evolve and as more baby boomers begin tweeting on Twitter, using Facebook and communicating via email, more seniors will develop the confidence to research products and shop online. Medicare Supplement Insurance is the perfect product which allows them to develop this confidence.
