Medicare 101 Training for Independent Insurance Agents

Medicare 101 TrainingUnderstanding Medicare can be a bit overwhelming. After all, it is an enormous government program with lots of rules and regulations and a language of its own. However, independent insurance agents who contract with MCC Brokerage have access to MCC Academy™, which offers a comprehensive Medicare 101 training course. This course will help you become familiar with the basics of Medicare and dual eligibility with Medicaid/MSP.

What Is Medicare?

Medicare is a national health insurance program that provides health care coverage to Americans aged 65 and older, among others. With more than 10,000 people in the United States turning 65 every single day, the Medicare market is growing at a tremendous rate. And, along with such growth comes not only an increased need for health care coverage, but also a growing demand for compassionate, ambitious agents to deliver top-notch service to these individuals.

What Does This Course Cover?

In our Medicare 101 training course, you’ll learn:

  • How to submit applications for the different parts of Medicare (Part A, Part B, etc.)
  • Protocol regarding “general” and “special” enrollment periods
  • Which health care-related expenses Medicare typically does and does not cover
  • Commonly used Medicare terminology such as “Medigap,” “Original Medicare,” etc.
  • What Medicaid is, and how this overlaps with and differs from Medicare

After taking this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of the basics of Medicare and will be ready to move on to the next course in our MCC Academy™ series, which focuses on the Products we offer. You’ll also be one step closer to helping your clients find the health care solutions they need.
