Do Your Groups Have Employees Turning 65?

Do You Have Clients Born Between February 1 and December 1, 1954?

In addition to a birthday celebration, these clients are going to need some assistance navigating their Initial Election Period or IEP. This is when they first become Medicare eligible. There is a seven-month window (three months before their birthday, the month of their birthday and three months following their birthday) where they are able to pick a Direct Pay Plan that best suits them in addition to enrolling in Part A & B (Original Medicare).

You can be their trusted resource and ease their minds in one of two ways:

  • Helping them choose a plan
  • Referring them to one of our employed agents to assist (Preferred Partner referral program)

We have plans starting at $0 premium. Many of our plans not only include a fitness benefit, as well as drug coverage, but also vision and dental coverage.
