SMS Offers a Solution to Medicare.gov's Prescription Drug List Policy Changes

Have you heard the news? As of October 1, 2019 agents will no longer be able to access prescription drug lists for their clients on Medicare.gov using the new Plan Finder. This represents a significant change, making the process of obtaining this information more difficult, and less pertinent even if it is obtained. Consequently, agents who use the site for that purpose and fail to adjust their procedures, will likely see their MA-PD and Part D sales suffer.

Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom. Senior Market Sales® (SMS) has a solution called Lead Advantage Pro®. This technology tool allows agents to easily and securely pull lists of prescription drugs, and store them on behalf of their clients. The process takes mere minutes to generate accurate client drug lists and reduces the potential for mistakes.
