Despite COVID-19 vaccinations entering the distribution phase, it’s evident that it will be some time before things get back to normal. Consumers continue to stay vigilant as 2021 takes off, practicing social distancing guidelines and other safety measures. Also, businesses are carrying on with various restrictions and pandemic-related challenges. With the continued uncertainty, producers need to show clients and prospects that they are still in business and offering viable Medicare solutions. Furthermore, they need to demonstrate how this can be done while adhering to both consumer and government needs.
Senior Market Sales® (SMS) offers a complete suite of technology tools designed to sell Medicare solutions in the manner that each individual client wishes to buy. Whether clients want to meet face-to-face, over-the-phone or online, SMS has your back. Producers can even make sales through texting technology. These tools help keep you, the agent, relevant from a consumer standpoint while at the same time helping to sustain business throughout 2021 and beyond. Below are some details regarding two of these tools, Lead Advantage Pro® and Medicare Insurance Direct® (MID).
Lead Advantage Pro is the proprietary tool from SMS that lets you take prospects from lead to enrollment in one place. In essence, this platform is designed to simplify your day and maximize your time. In addition, it works well as a means to meet clients’ needs in a compliant way while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
Ways that Lead Advantage Pro can improve your productivity during the pandemic and beyond:
Medicare Insurance Direct is a tool that allows you to help clients help themselves. 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 take them to a micro-site. The micro-site displays all the plans available from the carriers in all the states that work with SMS, including Medicare Advantage prescription drug plans, Part D and Medicare Supplements. Whether your clients prefer to enroll online, over-the-phone, via text or in-person; MID has you covered.
Here’s How MID works to help make sales while adhering to clients’ meeting preferences:
