I am sitting on the edge of my seat…

01 Apr

I’ll tell you why.

It’s not that what’s going on with COVID-19 isn’t bad enough but you know my focus is on the work I am doing for a marketing and advertising a Medicare company.

I am anxiously waiting to see if the government will open up a Special Enrollment Period for Medicare so that people can pick up Medicare plans or drop plans that would leave them vulnerable to owing too much, God forbid if they were hospitalized for COVID-19 or thought they had COVID-19.

I am sure there are many people on Medicare who would not pick the plans they are on if they only knew what this might cost them. And that is why people should not pick their Medicare plans on their own. They really do need to talk to an expert who lives, breathes and sleeps this stuff like the agents do. I’m not kidding about that. I’ve learned volumes about this after taking on this challenge.

My function is to market and communicate to end clients through web sites, tv commercials, social media, email marketing etc. It doesn’t do me any good if they aren’t eligible for an SEP. If they can’t change plans right now or add additional coverage, this will bankrupt some people on Medicare. There’s no other way to say it. We just should not let that happen. Right now some people are eligible for an SEP but we need a special one for COVID-19 for the people who aren’t eligible for the current SEP.

I am on the edge of my seat waiting for a decision on this one.

We desperately want to help those people but someone has to put us in a position where we can.
