Agents are an extension of your health plan and contribute to your organization’s growth; it is critical to be able to effectively onboard them, and oversee their compliance and performance during the busiest time of the year–Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). Many health plans have burdensome, labor-laden internal processes and/or manage multiple vendors to oversee sales operations activities.

Initiating efforts to make the onboarding and oversight back-end process seamless will make the difference. In streamlining your annual readiness process, the benefits from efficiencies and gains in productivity are clear.
