What can an insurance company do to enforce a non-compete clause in a contract with an agent when an agent leaves?

Can a life/health insurance company enforce anything to an agent who has left the company telling them not to speak with former clients and former prospective clients? If a former client or prospective calls the agent and requests that the agent do business with them is that legal?
