Preparing for the 2024 Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) in the Medicare market requires strategic planning and a proactive approach to effectively meet the needs of beneficiaries. As this critical period approaches, there are several key steps to consider in order to maximize your success and provide valuable services to your clients.
First and foremost, staying updated on changes to Medicare regulations, plan offerings, and industry trends is paramount. The healthcare landscape is constantly evolving, and being well-informed positions you as a reliable source of information for beneficiaries seeking the right coverage. Attend seminars, webinars, and training sessions provided by insurance carriers to ensure you're up-to-date with the latest developments.
Reviewing your marketing and outreach strategies is essential to engage potential clients during the AEP. Refresh your online presence by updating your website, social media profiles, and other digital channels. Consider creating informative content such as blog posts, videos, and downloadable guides that address common questions and concerns about Medicare plans. Tailoring your messaging to highlight the advantages of different plans can help beneficiaries make informed decisions.
Focusing on compliance is also crucial during the AEP. Familiarize yourself with the Medicare Marketing Guidelines issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These guidelines outline the dos and don'ts of marketing Medicare plans. Ensuring that your marketing materials are accurate, transparent, and compliant will maintain your reputation and prevent potential legal issues.
Lastly, anticipate the surge in inquiries and be prepared to offer personalized assistance to beneficiaries. Consider implementing systems to manage incoming queries efficiently, whether through your website, email, or phone. Providing clear and concise information, as well as addressing concerns promptly, can set you apart as a trustworthy advisor. By offering exceptional customer service, you'll establish strong relationships with clients that extend beyond the AEP.
By strategically approaching this period, you'll not only serve your clients effectively but also position yourself as a knowledgeable and reliable Medicare advisor.

Effective September 1, 2023, amendments to the Oklahoma Insurance Department (“OID”) Medicare supplement regulations create new enrollment requirements for Medicare supplement issuers.
Amendments to Oklahoma Administrative Code (“OAC”) 365:10-5-129(f) create new enrollment opportunities for Medicare supplement policyholders. The regulation requires Medicare supplement issuers to provide new supplement policies with the same or lesser benefits to current Medicare supplement policyholders—regardless of current issuer—who have had no gap in coverage greater than ninety (90) days since initial enrollment. Previously, these policyholders have had no opportunity after initial enrollment to move to any other Medicare supplement policies or issuers, trapping the policyholders in policies with rising premium costs and no opportunity to search for lower premium rates.
Issuers offering a new (i.e., succeeding) supplement policy shall waive medical underwriting or preexisting exclusions if the new supplement policy offers the same or lesser benefits. Issuers of the current (i.e., prior) policy are required to furnish a statement of benefits or other pertinent information sufficient to permit verification of benefit determination to any new issuer upon request.
Amendments to OAC 365:10-5-129(g) require issuers of Medicare supplement policies to provide notice to individuals under the age of sixty-five (65) enrolled in Medicare by reason of disability of their eligibility for open enrollment to Medicare supplement policies upon reaching the age of sixty-five (65). Issuers must provide this notice sixty (60) to ninety (90) days prior to the first day of the first month in which the individual becomes sixty-five (65) years of age.
