We know that only a small fraction of Medicare Advantage (MA) consumers are switching during the Annual Election Period (AEP) each year. This makes the New-to-Medicare (NTM) market more important than ever. But the NTM demographic is quickly changing, requiring new strategies to capture this important Medicare audience.
Those turning 65 in 2021 are the first of the “Trailing Boomers” to become Medicare eligible, and they are different from their predecessors, known as “Leading Boomers”. Many are still finishing up their careers, putting kids through college and starting to think about when and where they’ll retire. According to our partners at Deft Research and Carrot Health, 50% of consumers who turn 65 each year plan to keep working and enroll in Medicare after their initial Medicare enrollment period.
This means that a modern NTM program needs to address both the Turning-65 (T65) and Working-Past-65 (WP65) audiences. Media Logic has developed a proven set of year-round strategies and tactics for attracting New-to-Medicare leads – and can customize our approach around your market, your opportunities and your brand. We put together some key insights that will help you modernize and improve your NTM recruitment efforts.
