    The law is very vague but on page 112 it basically states that: you cannot use the word Medicare in a manner that would convey the false impression that the business or product mentioned is approved, endorsed, or authorized by Medicare or any other government agency.

    https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Health-Plans/ManagedCareMarketing/Downloads/2014MedicareMarketingGuidelines.pdf


    When I first started, I had a general agent who had a website with Medicare in the title and one of his FMOs objected to it. I do not know all the details but he did contact CMS and received clarification that it was okay to do.

    Also, look at all the sites that have the word Medicare in their title.

    Hope someone with more knowledge chimes in.

    The site does not carry the required CMS approval code(s) needed for a website marketing MAPD plans, etc. Someone should turn them in and file the loudest complaint ever.
