Albuquerque, New Mexico (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Late enrollment penalties, donut holes, calendar year maximums, catastrophic coverage – oh my. Medicare sure sounds frightening but don’t fret. With a little knowledge you’ll find it’s not nearly as scary as you may think.
Consumers Direct Insurance Services (CDIS), Inc., an Independent, Authorized Senior General Agent for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico is gearing up for Medicare’s 2014 Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), which runs from October 15th through December 7th, with the release of its Medicare Seminar Series*.
CDIS’ Medicare Seminar Series, is a grassroots initiative that places experienced local insurance agents in a controlled learning environment for Medicare beneficiaries to gather essential plan benefit information while also providing a forum for answers to their questions.
“Consumers Direct Insurance Services of New Mexico is excited about its upcoming Medicare Seminar Series, because it gives us an opportunity to engage the local public and present all of the new plan options from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico,” said Scott Loochtan, President of Consumers Direct Insurance Services, Inc. “Trying to decipher all of this material on your own can be daunting and that is why we offer this complimentary service to make the process much easier.”
The Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) is the one time of year that Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in either a standalone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan (PDP) or Medicare Advantage (MA) plan can make a change for the next year.
“The AEP is the insurance agent’s tax season,” noted Loochtan. “Medicare beneficiaries all over the country have been eagerly awaiting this time of year to review and analyze their plans so that they can secure the best options to meet their needs in the upcoming year.”
CDIS’ insurance agents go through a stringent Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) and Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage (MA), continuing education and certification process each year in order to assist current and potential clients. This certification allows them to provide full service Medicare solutions while making themselves available in a variety of ways through technology, over the phone or in person appointments.
