    UHC pays till year 10 now I believe. It’s less after year 6 like most companies.

    Most of my business is t65’s. Lowest priced plan G in orlando is UHC at $164.78 and UA is $188. Even if I didn’t feel “good” about UHC I could put them with Humana for $166.97, MoO for $168.35 or Aetna $170.93.

    Why in the world would I put them with UA? They are way overpriced for most parts of FL. The only low priced plan with them is high F. No thanks.

    Why do you think you could boost my Med supp sales? If I offer my clients a plan that is 15% more, of course I get more commissions, but I also lose the trust of those clients and will eventually lose the sale once an agent that has better companies in his bag talks to them. There’s a a reason why UHC has 56% market share in FL and UA has 5

    UA isn't remotely competitive in that zip for Plan G or any plan except for HDF.

    Sounds like someone has been drinking the Torchmark Kool-Aid!

    UA had a decrease for Plan N this year. Aetna and MOO will have increases effective 3/1. I heard Humana will have an increase, but haven't confirmed it. Thrivent has a good price for Plan G.

    I don't see any of his posts so apparently he does not want to give his recruitment pitch, or he has blocked me. I would have liked to have read his pitch, he got his license & started in the insurance business in 2015 per the FL DOI. Facts matter.

    I think he deleted them all. He was the one who revived this thread. It’s gone
