    Thanks to those who have been using Medicareful for MA/PDP enrollment and electronic Scopes of Appointment. Today, I was looking at our year over year enrollment counts and we're up 1,200% this October! Let me know if you have any questions. More good stuff coming to this platform in 2018. . .

    As a user of this system, I must say, it is one of the easiest methods of enrollment I have encountered. And as Craig stated above, more good stuff coming.

    The ease of getting enrollments completed just by sending a link to your client is such a time and money saver. And the application is all on one screen so the beneficiary isn't having to click "next" over and over to move to the next step.

    I have worked for several years doing business over the phone. Once the client has agreed on a plan I would then fill out an application, mail it to my client with "sign here" tabs along with a letter and a postage paid return envelope. That's time consuming. And if you've ever mailed an enrollment kit, you know it's kind of expensive. Multiply this process by 50, 100 or however many applications you take over the course of AEP, and you get an idea of the time and cost to do business that way. Now change that method to electronic enrollments and I'm saving 15-30 minutes per application and a few dollars per enrollment by not mailing enrollment kits and a postage paid return envelope.

    If you aren't using Ritter's Medicareful site for your electronic SOA's and enrollments, you're missing out.

    I am also a regular user of Medicareful and it is an excellent system.

    Sman gave as good an explanation of the benefits for agents as is possible, all I can add is :yes::yes::yes::yes::yes::yes::yes::yes::yes:

    Thanks! Recently, we've gotten approval from all 6 Health Plans/PDP sponsors to allow for use of Medicareful.com in a face to face environment in addition to the telephonic/email method. The member still needs to be the one who signs and submits the application. eSOA or paper SOA is, of course, still required for face to face, regardless of whether submitting paper or electronic.

    AEP to date volume is still running 12.5x prior year!

    Had I to start at this point in time I'd put all my contracts with Ritter. His system makes everything way to easy. I have my two biggest contracts (to me) tied up with another FMO. I am loyal to him for reasons beyond explaining but for someone new, I'd hit up Ritter in a heartbeat. Esoa and direct enrollment is pretty amazing.

    I just started using Medicareful this week and I absolutely love this system! Last week I struggled with a carrier site to enroll 2 clients. The application was not rendering appropriately and items being entered were being altered before our eyes as we went from screen to screen. I called the staff at Ritter and they were WONDERFUL with not only suggesting the Medicareful site but setting me up in the system within hours. This week I have processed 3 applications through the site and the process could not have been any easier. I highly recommend using the Medicareful site as well as working with Ritter, they are an incredible caring team.

    Thank you all for the kind comments and for using our system. We are continuing to see good performance and usage growth. This is key to helping us expand the offering to more MA/PDP carriers in the future!

    Happy AEP!

    The coast to coast time difference continues to be an issue for me at times. That said, my challenges with Medicareful online enrollment seem to be resolved with the patient and expert support from Linda Kennedy. This tool is very well thought through and now that the learning curve stress is gone, takes the stress out of enrollment for the customer and me. This is the ONLY way to manage Part D enrollments for the growing list of carriers Craig has given us access to. Thank You Craig and Linda! Tom Magnus, RHU, LUTCF
