Many of you may know that this year will be a milestone birthday for me. I turn 65 in May! In the past I never associated Medicare benefits with my own personal circumstances, but now it’s become something I think about frequently. I’d like to share some of the experiences I’ve had recently, and hope you find it insightful as you grow your business and interact with folks like me for years to come.
Humana Medicare Agents
While none of us want to see our clients leaving their Medicare Advantage Plans, we all want to make sure we are providing our clients with the service they deserve. Sometimes, this means guiding them out of plans they are not so comfortable with and into ones more fitting for their needs.
You spend a lot of time and effort during the AEP marketing and enrolling Medicare beneficiaries. Make sure that you also spend the proper time and effort submitting error-free applications. We have identified the six most common errors that cause enrollment applications to pend. They are as follows:
If you work in the Medicare Advantage business, some things are commonplace. If you facilitate MAPD and PDP enrollments, or support someone who does, it is almost certain you’ll have to deal with a commission audit at some point or another. Maybe you’ve recently joined a new agency and want to direct funds from the carrier to the agency in exchange for certain resources you gain. Perhaps you just set up an LLC and want your commissions paid to your new business, or have associates who will now be facilitating enrollments as an extension of your business. And of course, there will always be opportunities to assist your membership with an enrollment or billing issue they may encounter.
“It is with great pleasure to recommend Larry Bishop, Bishop Marketing Agency, as we have been satisfied by the professional and ethical responsiveness from his company. Larry understands the needs of the producers and responds as soon as possible to any questions or help that we may need.
If Larry cannot help with the situation, he immediately contacts the person or appropriate department that can help with the producer’s situation. Larry Bishop is dependable even when he is out of the office. Also, he knows Humana and understands all the plans that would help our clients. There is a benefit to being contracted through an agency who values the agents and understands the products.
We would strongly recommend Bishop Marketing Agency and Larry Bishop.”
