How are Medicare agents paid?

Back to Medicare FAQs


Typically, Health insurance agents and brokers are paid through commissions. The insurance companies pay either a flat fee or a percentage of the monthly premium to the insurance agent for bringing them the customer and for continuing to service the client in the future.

Here at Sunnyside Medicare, our agents are employees and are not paid a commission based on enrolling a client. It’s important for you to know that our agents don’t have an incentive to enroll you in one plan or another and there’s no incentive to enroll you with one carrier over another. Our agents are truly looking out for what is in your best interest.

When you choose to work with one of our licensed insurance agents, you can rest assured that you’re going to pay the same rate as if you enrolled directly with the carriers.
