Several MA carriers are compensating brokers between $10 and $70 for assisting new members with completing post enrollment health assessments. The surveys are brief and help the carriers identify resources that may be beneficial for individual members. This is another opportunity to create value for both client and plan sponsor, based on a member’s specific needs. Assessments are entirely voluntary, and we encourage brokers to assure their clients that the survey does not affect their enrollment status or eligibility.
With Medicare’s Annual Election Period just around the corner, it’s time to review the Annual Notice of Change. ANOCs give beneficiaries a chance to review their current Medicare plans and change if needed. It’s the job of Medicare broker to go over these changes with their clients before AEP begins.
We are excited to introduce our Broker Connect comparison, quoting, and enrollment tool to our brokers. After the challenges broker experienced with Medicare.gov last AEP, Broker Connect is an easier way to shop and quote Medicare and enroll beneficiaries.
