Agents offering Medicare solutions during the busy AEP season know that efficiency is key to success. In other words, those who make the most use of every available moment, complete more enrollments and earn larger profits.
Senior Market Sales® (SMS) offers a great solution to the efficiency conundrum through Medicare Insurance Direct® (MID). MID is a Medicare enrollment technology tool designed to help you reach that top echelon of AEP success. With MID, you can cater to clients’ enrollment preferences, working with them online, over the phone, in person and even via text message. Plus, MID works all day and all night, allowing you to complete enrollments on your clients’ preferred schedule.
MID is a tool that allows you to help clients help themselves, thus avoiding the need to meet in person. The idea of MID is to pair your good, sound advice regarding a client’s Medicare solution with the convenience of self-enrollment. You can use MID to match beneficiaries with available plans based on individual healthcare, prescription drug needs and estimated out-of-pocket expenses.
You send a Personalized Universal Resource Locator (PURL) to your clients that takes them to a micro-site displaying the states and carriers that you are properly credentialed to sell, including Medicare Advantage prescription drug plans, Part D and Medicare Supplements. Plus, this platform gives you the ability to quote all Medicare Advantage and Part D plans.
Here’s How MID Works to help make sales:
- You set up a consumer-facing website through MID, and personalize it for your business (your site will only show plans you’re licensed and appointed to offer).
- Your clients get the convenience of quoting and enrolling in Medicare Advantage and Part D plans online, at their leisure.
- You get credit for every sale because you have a custom URL and your agent writing number is associated with the site.
And now, due to multiple enhancements, MID is even more powerful than before. Said enhancements are geared toward saving you time, so you can earn more money and differentiate yourself from the competition.
