Generate Leads with CMS-Approved Marketing Materials
A number of print materials are available on ShopRitterIM to help you attract quality leads.
Business Reply Cards
Using business reply cards (BRCs) to acquire leads doesn’t get much easier: order, mail, wait for return. What’s great about BRCs on ShopRitterIM is they’ve been filed with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Following CMS’ October 2021 memo tightening regulation on consumer communication, specifically deceitful promotion of Medicare Advantage plan benefits that may not be available in certain areas or to all beneficiaries who may see that message, we enhanced our BRCs and got them approved by CMS.
Depending what time of year and the market you’re targeting, there are five types of BRCs available on ShopRitterIM:
- Annual Enrollment Period: Perfect for generating opportunities for plan reviews and plan changes for the upcoming plan year
- Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan: A great option for finding opportunities to enroll an underserved market outside of AEP
- 5-Star Plans SEP: Sell in a market that has a 5-Star MA plan? Every beneficiary has a once-a-year SEP to move from their current plan to a 5-Star plan
- Medicare Medical Savings Account: These lead cards help you start the conversation with beneficiaries interested in this unique MA plan-type
- Turning 65: Use these cards to find first-time Medicare buyers and build a book supported by renewal business
You’ll keep lead generating stress-free and compliant sending these BRCs.
