    That’s why I said his FMO isn’t the issue.

    I sell select MA's and PDP online all the time completely paperless. Applications go direct to CMS and yes I am the agent of record and am paid according from the carrier.

    Carriers can be so behind the curve when it comes to technology.

    Chrome is the most popular browser followed by Firefox. Explorer and Safari are way down the list.

    If they hired decent programmers their clients would not have compatibility problems.
    Could also be ad blocker.

    I have that issue with a few sites. Have to turn the blocker off or whitelist the site to access it.

    Not trying to beat a dead horse but the issue I had with it was the difference between Microsoft "edge" and "Internet Explorer" - both have similar logos and I thought I was using Explorer but I was really using Edge. Once I used true explorer it worked - can't remember if I had to do anything else (something tells me I had to do one more step... compatibility mode or something?). Anyway, I eventually got it up and running which is nice for Humana MAPD.

    Now that I have a Mac it's extra annoying though. I have to boot up the old laptop anytime someone wants Humana's mapd... I really wish Humana would just fix it so we can use Chrome.

    I have a problem sometimes with my bank and Chrome. It is one of the larger regional banks but some of the things I need don't play well with Chrome.

    Look where IE comes in on this site. A bit surprised at position for Safari but very surprised at Opera.

    I think it's because Google knows that there are ... how should I put this... potential issues with your Cayman accounts.

    Operating a call center is an entirely different ball of wax from being an independent agent
    who markets and sells MAPD plans. It sounds like you want to help people enroll into
    Med Supp, MAPD or Part D plans. The easiest way to do this is to mail the prospect information and have them call you. Ask them to sign a scope and email,fax or mail it in.

    Ritter offers its agents medicareful.com where consumers can enroll online and it also
    grabs the scope.

    Cheers
