    I am not new to the health insurance business, but am trying to build a business in medicare supplements and MA plans beginning this season. I need advice on whether to affiliate directly with carriers (if I can get a contract) or to use an FMO (or a large GA). The key for me is to own my own book that I can sell in the future. I do not want to be an agent for any organization (including a carrier) in which I don't own my book. Any suggestions?

    All of the good FMOs provide contracts where you are paid directly-Ritter IM is excellent, so are a few others.

    You may want to consider Senior Market Sales at (402) 343-3613. Ask for Tom Parkin. I have worked with him for years and he provides excellent agent support.

    I'll put our name out there as an FMO for Med Supps and Med Advantage as well.

    Don't hold your breath that you can sell a book.

    Anyone can offer contracts. I recommend Todd King for a variety of reasons including training. Medicare isn't difficult but it's easy to screw your client by only offering high priced plans.

    I thought there was some alliance. Last I checked MedicareTraining101 didnt offer that much value. Being I have a contract or two with TK how do I gain access?

    You think he would contact you if he thought there was much value in it.
