The Final Enrollment Push

Enrollment Video for Consumers


Do you work with consumers that more information on the enrollment process? Do you need a tool for outreach while consumers are waiting for an appointment? Check out GHF’s “Getting Covered During Open Enrollment” with our enrollment assister, Pranay Rana. It’s a great piece to add to your tool box.

The Final Enrollment Push

There are less than two weeks left in Open Enrollment and the final push is coming. If this year is anything like the previous OE’s, there will be a big rush of consumers during the final days. Make sure you talk to your consumers about the deadline (Jan. 31) and educate them on all of the materials they need for open enrollment. Nothing is more frustrating for you and the consumer than having them come to you in the final days of open enrollment, but not having all of the materials they need. Here is a great resource to remind consumers what they need to bring with them to an enrollment appointment:

During Open Enrollment while you’re focused on consumer appointments, outreach opportunities, and other enrollment tasks, it’s hard to stay on top of emails, new resources, webinars, etc. If you receive the CMS weekly assister newsletter, you may just scan it and then hit delete or let it fall to the bottom of your in box while you try to manage all of your other emails. However, those emails are often times full of great information that you may find out you wish you had known about during OE. Fortunately, our friends over at In the Loop understand this and have created an archive of all the assister newsletters. Now you can go back and look through them for any missed info, such as the Assister’s Roadmap to Resources and all of their archived webinars. Click here to go to the In the Loop archive.
