The Open Enrollment Period (OEP) for the 2017-2018 selling season is right around the corner! Are you ready? If not, then this OEP will certainly catch you off guard because this year the duration of OEP is only six weeks. That’s half the time that you had to enroll clients in previous years! That’s why Jeff Hess, the individual health and ancillary product specialist from Empower Brokerage, wants agents to not only complete all required contracting and certification but to also equip themselves with all the best ACA tools Empower has to offer. These tools will be a huge asset during the hectic selling season that will start November 1.
ACA Express Engine
Empower has the tools that are going to help you do everything you need to do as quickly and efficiently as possible. One notable tool is our ACA Express Engine. Because CMS is not requiring web brokers to do redirects back and forth between websites, the ACA Express Engine will cut enrollment time significantly this year. Since the amount of time for the enrollment period has been cut to 6 weeks, having a fast tool will come in handy. By utilizing the ACA Express Engine, you can help 8 to 10 people with quotes and enrollments in an hour (if you’re organized). Not only does it allow you to get your quotes done quickly, it will also help you maintain a record of what you have sold to someone, whether it’s Blue Cross, Humana, Molina, or whatever. This allows you to monitor your business and make sure your clients have paid because it they don’t pay the you won’t get paid. In summation, the ACA Express Engine wil speed up your application process, and it will allow you to micro-manage your business.
