Back to the burial insurance, or final expense insurance. If you sell this type of a policy alongside health insurance policies, it is a natural segue to also talk about burial needs and how an unexpected death could impact a person’s family financially. While there is no need for a hard sell, discussing health insurance is a natural way to open the door to considering what may be needed in the event of a life-threatening health scare.
But, it is also not something to bring up while discussing various health insurance policies. You have a strategy to follow while selling health insurance. Use the same type of strategy you use to sell health insurance to close other possible deals on different types of insurance. For instance, health insurance, particularly for those 65 and over, is something that is very important and part and parcel of Medicaid and being covered for health issues, is the possibility of being hospitalized, sent for surgery and need recovery time in a care home, or need at-home care to recover.
Part of the consideration of health care coverage is what is needed in the event of a fatal illness or sudden, unexpected death. Discussing Medicare and final expense insurance, while perhaps awkward, is a stroke of brilliance. Humans do have a way of avoiding such discussions, but they definitely are necessary. If you can bridge the difficult gap between good health care coverage and making sure all possible related expenses can be covered, your conversion rate jumps.
