2021 Medicare AEP Strategy: Targeting & Added Value

Getting older adults to switch Medicare plans during the Annual Election Period usually involves a lot of individual attention. In-person consultations. Group sales meetings. So in a year where these things simply aren’t possible, how do you gain a competitive advantage?

For MVP Health Care, it meant leaning into virtual assets and alternative ways of connecting, maximizing web traffic, and leveraging the impressive amount of value offered by the health insurer’s Medicare Advantage plans.

Media Logic worked with MVP on an integrated campaign incorporating direct mail, DRTV, paid search and social, print, outdoor and more – and driving to landing pages that highlighted key benefits, offered up assets like localized video seminars and (perhaps most importantly) with prioritized calls to action to better capture leads. We also developed a new cost calculator that enabled user to generate side-by-side comparisons of plan costs based on individual health care needs. Messaging across all components reinforced the guidance offered by MVP’s Medicare Advisors – helping to create an environment that felt truly personal… even at a distance.

Caregiver Support: A Strategy Worthy of Payer Attention

Caregivers are not only valuable contributors to the health care system, but they can also influence member shopping decisions on Medicare and other plans, and they are payer members and patients themselves. While the current trend toward value-based care emphasizes patient centricity, it stands to reason that payers that also develop and communicate benefits which support caregivers will improve outcomes all the way around. Understanding the caregiver landscape and their unmet needs is key to informing strategies to address them.

How to Leverage Population Health Management to Increase Medicare Advantage Enrollment

Many Medicare Advantage plans focus on chronic condition management once an individual is a member; however, they may gain more competitive advantage and engagement by better leveraging their benefits for chronic condition management during acquisition periods. Our blog has top-line suggestions for communicating population health management benefits to age-ins and potential switchers.

HC Insights - Population Health Management as a Differentiator

Population Health Management as a Health Plan Differentiator for Medicare Advantage

It's well known that the Medicare Advantage market has becoming increasingly crowded. During this past AEP, Medicare shoppers had, on average, 39 MA plans from which to choose – an all-time high — so it's more important than ever for payers to find ways to stand out. We believe that one of those ways should include better merchandising and promotion of population health management programs.
