During these changing times, it can be a challenge to grow your Medicare clientele. Mega call centers have disrupted the business for many agents and brokers. While the competition is fierce, opportunity abounds with the proliferation of five-star plans.
Medicare prospects are increasingly savvy consumers and look for verification from trusted sources. That’s where the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) can play in your favor.
On an annual basis, CMS rates Medicare Advantage (MA) and Part D (PDP) plans. This rating system is based on a five-star scale with five stars denoting the best-rated plans. This is especially helpful for those with Medicare who wish to compare plan attributes such as quality, cost and coverage. Just as important, the five-star plans can be sold throughout the year, representing far more than seasonally-available marketing which can wear even the best of agents down due to long working hours.
Senior Market Sales® (SMS) provides you the opportunity to market five-star plans, not just in your community but also in much broader geography. Once licensed and appointed in non-resident states, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to sell MA and PDP plans beyond your current market. Armed with the best technology, agents contracted with SMS have access to Lead Advantage Pro® and Medicare Insurance Direct® that provide the quoting and enrollment tools you need to be successful.
Even during these challenging times, SMS has remained an innovator, providing technology tools for overcoming pandemic challenges. No matter what the future holds, rest assured that SMS will continue to help agents leverage time, make more money and put their business in a position of distinction.
