Ambetter has quite a large variety of hospitals and doctors.
What Ambetter plan features resonate best with your clients? i.e.- My Health Pays program, rates, network, etc.: Rates and network.
How do you generate new leads? Generally leads are generated by happy customers who will pass a good word and my info to their friends and families.
How do you ensure your clients make their binder payment? From the moment the policy is bound, I personally make sure the binder payment was processed and automatic payment plan feature is turned on with the client consent. Next day, I check the portal for the policy number and payment status. Also, the ID card is being sent to the client as soon as it becomes available.
What would you like to see more issuers do in the ACA market or add to the market for the next open enrollment season? Before open enrollment starts November 1st, we would like to be informed ahead of time of new changes so we can be fully prepared to discuss plans and pricing that's coming up on November 1st.
