Course Overview

Insurance agents face ethical dilemmas on a regular basis when conflicts arise between their interests and those of the clients and carriers they represent. The reason it is a dilemma is because these conflicts are not always a decision between right and wrong; frequently agents must decide between right and right. This is especially true for agents who market Medicare products—there are rules in place to protect the clients they serve, but some agents feel that the rules get in the way and actually prevent them from helping their clients. In this course, we’ll examine 1) some of the ethical decisions involved in completing routine and sometimes dreadful amounts of paperwork related to compliance in the Medicare sales arena as well as 2) the numerous marketing rules involved in Medicare sales and the ethical considerations in performing those rules and duties compliantly, even when it takes several extra steps than it might have even just a few years ago.
