Your doctor or other health care provider may recommend you get services more often than Medicare covers. Or, they may recommend services that Medicare doesn’t cover. If this happens, you may have to pay some or all of the costs. It’s important to ask questions so you understand why your doctor is recommending certain services and whether Medicare will pay for them.

How to Sell Medicare Supplement Over the Phone
When starting to sell Medicare Supplements by Phone it is important, rather than asking if it’s a good time to talk, to state how long the call will last and then stick to it. Make sure you call your prospect by their first name and give your name clearly to them, avoiding your company name unless it is noteworthy. Once you’ve reached the end of your initial time you can ask if they would like to continue to talk about their Medicare Supplement needs or if you should reschedule. This will show you respect your prospects’ time. Once the potential client has asked you to continue it is important to ask open-ended questions, use a person’s first name rather than their last (using last names makes the call seem formal, and you should go for a casual conversation instead), and use descriptive words and stories to tell your prospect why they should purchase a Medicare Supplement by Phone from you. Also, be sure to watch your facial expressions while prospecting Medicare Supplements by Phone, it is amazing how they translate over the phone line; and, add energy to your phone calls by standing up or sitting with good posture as your tone will come off as more enthusiastic.

Then, once your summary is complete, allow your prospect to have the final comment or question. Ideally, once you have completed your Medicare Supplement by Phone sales pitch your prospect will be ready to become a client and you can turn to your Medicare Supplement e-application sales process to complete the sale.

If the prospect does not pick up while you are selling Medicare Supplements by phone and you must leave a voicemail, make sure to keep the message very short.
