Winning During AEP: It’s a State of Mind

You can’t win if you’ve already lost in your mind. If you’ve given up and accepted defeat before you’ve even tried, you’ve eliminated the possibility of winning. AEP is a slog, a marathon. Beginning the 7-week challenge with the mental certainty that you can’t win becomes a self-fulling prophecy, and it becomes your reality. You’re better off assuming you’ll succeed during AEP and being optimistic enough to believe every loss is temporary; that you’re playing a longer game, and that you’ll do better the next time. A large part (maybe the most substantial part) of your results start in your mind. While it’s easy to blame external forces for your failures, it does nothing to improve your results. When you change your beliefs, you free yourself to change your behaviors and actions, and you improve your outcomes. You can do this.

Medicare Advantage Market Is Still Stout

The Medicare Advantage market remains strong with continued opportunity for growth, according to Mark Farrah research. As of June 30, M/A saw membership increases of 742,000 since last year, with more and more beneficiaries choosing an M/A plan over Traditional Medicare. According to plan-reported statutory reports, enrollment in M/A plans increased from 21.6 million in June 2018 to more than 22.3 million in June 2019. This steady, 3.4% growth is expected to continue.

The U.S. Census Bureau expects 16% of the population – 52+ million people – will be Medicare-eligible by 2050. With 10,000 new prospects every day, we’ll see 23.6% of the population becoming Senior Market prospects. That’s more than 98 million people. But the real distribution change is at the very top of the oldest Americans: while 65+ Americans will grow by 67% from now until 2050, 85+ Americans will grow by 189%.These factors set the program on a path to dramatically expand as a share of the economy and your commerce.
