Medicare Compliance Training for Agents and Brokers

Overview

Medicare plays a critical role in ensuring access to health care for millions of Americans. Choosing the appropriate Medicare plan is one of the most important decisions faced by newly eligible and current Medicare beneficiaries each year, yet the various options can be confusing and every consumer's circumstances are unique. Insurance agents are trusted to help their clients navigate the Medicare program and make the best choices possible. For this reason, it's critically important that insurance producers fully understand the ins and outs of the Medicare program, including changes to the program from one year to the next. With annual Medicare training, agents and other financial professionals do more than satisfy a regulatory requirement-they also exhibit a commitment to professionalism for their clients, the companies they represent, and their own businesses.
