Why Should You Attend the WAP Medicare Academy?

A lucrative career is within your grasp. As an independent agent selling Medicare insurance, you can own your own business and earn an attractive income. It doesn’t require an expensive and time-consuming degree, either. The Medicare Academy is a one-day event that can give you the information you need to get started on the road to success.

What is Medicare?

Medicare is the federal health insurance program of the United States. It’s primarily for people aged 65 or older, but some younger individuals with disabilities or end-stage renal disease also qualify.

Currently, more than 60 million people are enrolled in Medicare. This number is increasingly rapidly. Every day, 10,000 Baby Boomers age into Medicare. That’s 10,000 people who need a new insurance plan – every single day!

How can you succeed in Medicare sales?

People who enroll in Medicare have options. In general, they’ll either pick either Original Medicare, which includes Medicare Parts A and B, along with a private Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, or they’ll pick a private Medicare Advantage plan.

Medicare Advantage plans often provide benefits not included in Original Medicare, like dental and vision. Given this, it’s not surprising that Medicare Advantage is an increasingly popular choice. According to KFF, only 13 percent of Medicare enrollees picked a Medicare Advantage plan in 2005. By 2018, that figure had risen to 34 percent. That’s more than 20 million enrollees.

But there’s not just one Medicare Advantage plan. There are lots of them. So how do beneficiaries know which plan is best for them? Medicare Insurance agents help people select and enroll in the best plan for their needs, and they earn a commission for doing so.
