  2. An agent pressures you into buying a Medigap policy through lying and misleading.
  3. An agent tries to sell you a Medigap policy although they know you are receiving Medicaid, except in certain situations.
  4. An agent tries to sell you a Medigap policy when they know you have Medicare Advantage, unless your coverage under the Advantage plan ends before the Medigap effective date.
  5. An agent claims that a Medigap policy is part of the Medicare program or another federal program.
  6. An agent claims that a Medicare Advantage policy is a Medigap plan.
  7. An agent tries to sell you a Medigap policy that is not offered in your state.
