You have been kind enough to receive emails from me for the last seven years about Humana’s Medicare Advantage plans. Today I would like to share my personal experience from yesterday with enrolling into a Humana plan.
Many of you may know that this year will be a milestone birthday for me. I turn 65 in May! In the past I never associated Medicare benefits with my own personal circumstances, but now it’s become something I think about frequently. I’d like to share some of the experiences I’ve had recently, and hope you find it insightful as you grow your business and interact with folks like me for years to come.
If Larry cannot help with the situation, he immediately contacts the person or appropriate department that can help with the producer’s situation. Larry Bishop is dependable even when he is out of the office. Also, he knows Humana and understands all the plans that would help our clients. There is a benefit to being contracted through an agency who values the agents and understands the products.
We would strongly recommend Bishop Marketing Agency and Larry Bishop.”

The concept of Humana’s Guidance Centers has actually been around for nearly 20 years. In some circles it is known as the “Zephyrhills” or “Gulf Shore Mall” model. These were modest little retail storefronts where agents could get work done between appointments, new members could come for orientations on their plan, and existing members could stop by to address a customer service issue or ask a question.
I had an agent tell me recently that “United was more generous than Humana because they offered unlimited renewals.” Currently, Humana offers a six-year tail on MAPD and PDP enrollments, which begins with either the “initial” or “replacement sale,” as CMS defines it.
