Get to Know Your Medicare Team at Twin City Underwriters
September 6, 2022 | Andrea Bassett
At Twin City Underwriters, we know how overwhelming the Medicare journey can be. Before joining, you’ll find yourself wondering – When do I apply? What type of plan is right for me? What insurance carrier should I enroll with? How much will it cost? Once you get past these initial steps, you’ll need to review potential changes to your plans and even Medicare regulations on an annual basis. With all of these moving parts, it’s easy to feel at a loss. This is where the Twin City Underwriters team can be an invaluable resource in providing you peace of mind when making Medicare decisions.
The Twin City Underwriters Model
The way Twin City Underwriters (TCU) operates is different than most independent insurance agencies or insurance brokers out there. At TCU, our agents work as a team to empower one another and provide our clients with unsurpassed service. Rather than being tied to one agent, our entire team is able to answer your questions and review your options each year, ensuring you receive support promptly.
Another way the Twin City Underwriters team is unlike other insurance agents and companies is the way in which our agents are paid. In the insurance industry, most agents are paid on commission. However, at TCU, our agents are paid a salary and never on commission. Our goal behind this unique model is to remove any bias when helping clients select a plan that is most suitable for their individual needs.

“So, how do you all get paid and keep the lights on?” you might ask. Medicare plans include a built-in sales commission, which can be paid directly to the plans’ internal agents or external “captive” agents representing the plan. Other independent agents might contract with just a few insurance companies. At TCU, our agents are licensed with most major carriers in our region.
All received commissions go directly to our agency’s operation rather than individual agents. Essentially, agents are free from personal gain and able to make recommendations solely on our Medicare clients’ best interest.
At Twin City Underwriters there is never a fee or charge for our educational seminars, one-on-one appointments or calling in anytime with questions.
