Anthem CT 2022 AEP Updates

November 8, 2021

We are 46% of the way through AEP! What a crazy time we are in. As mentioned last week, November is the month to share gratitude. Let’s kick start this week the right way and go over some updates, selling points and competition!

MediBlue Dual Advantage Select HMO

  • $0 on all tiers of RX
  • $50 grocery card & healthy pantry
  • $100 OTC/quarter that rolls over Q to Q
  • Essential Extras Pick 1 ($500 Flex Card)
  • $0 copays for cleanings and exams for dental, vision, hearing
  • $1500 comprehensive dental, $100 vision allowance, $2000 hearing allowance
  • $500 service dog support
  • 24 transportation trips

Medicare.gov DSNP RX

The MediBlue Dual Select HMO and MediBlue Dual Access PPO plans have $0 cost share on all tiers of prescriptions. You will notice on CMS.gov planfinder, DSNP Rx copays are not showing up as $0. This is a nuance with how the bids are filed under Value Based Insurance Design. Anthem is, in fact, at $0 copay for ALL Rx for both retail and mail order for both MediBlue Dual Select HMO and MediBlue Dual Access PPO. Due to nuances around VBID filing, CMS.gov planfinder will only show copays as filed in the bid and CMS.gov planfinder uses data directly from the bid filing, and are not able to capture the VBID nuances with this data.

AEP Sales Competition

Top 3 agents with the most sales from 11/1-11/30:

  • Anthem cooler filled with either beer and snacks or wine and chocolate (your choice!)

There is one spot left for the Anthem backpack!

Co-op Competition For 11/1 & 12/1 Effective Dates

One more month! If you sell a cumulative 5 or more Medicare Advantage applications for 11/1/21 and 12/1/21 effective dates, you will receive $500 for co-op during OEP. If you sell cumulative 10 or more Medicare Advantage applications for 11/1/21 and 12/1/21 effective dates, you will receive $1000 for co-op during OEP. Applications for Medicare Supplement will not count toward the cumulative sales. Keep on selling and let’s get you some co-op!

DSNP Verification Codes

If you cannot get a code, you can submit application and send the award letter to Rebecca Palazzo. A few ways to get a code: mProducer, emailing medicaideligibility@anthem.com, or calling 844.274.6355. The portal does not always show Husky D members, if they qualify for QMB they will qualify for our DSNP plans. You can always submit the award letter to the carrier.

DSNP Validation phone number is 844.274.6355. You will need to enter the zip code when prompted to reach the correct State. Please enter the validation code to the enrollment application to process your applications.
