NAAIP Newsletter 4-18-2019: Walmart Retail Medicare Program

Recommended Posts

Hello {$name},

Subject Line: Join the Walmart Retail Program with NAAIP

 

The Walmart Retail Program is returning for AEP 2020. The program allows NAAIP agents to reserve a Walmart store during AEP. Agents have the opportunity to interact with Walmart shoppers, answer their questions, and enroll them in Medicare plans.

Stores Must Be Reserved

Agent reservation is exclusive; no other agents will be allowed a presence in that Walmart. The sooner you apply for a store the better your chances of reserving it.

For AEP 2020 there are more than 2,500 unclaimed stores. 

  • Must be contracted through NAAIP with at least two Medicare Advantage carriers who offer plans in the store area.
  • Must complete Medicare certifications for AHIP and your Medicare Advantage carriers by September 10, 2019.
  • Agent must be in store three days per week for a total of 20 hours per week between October 7 and December 13. This can be divided between multiple agents.
  • $250 application fee per store (if with 3 med adv carriers - 2 carriers will be $500). Agents will be credited to cover this cost at the end of the program if adhere the program guidelines.

You Must Apply and Submit their Store Selection with NAAIP by May 17, 2019

  • Available Stores   Click to find stores in your area. 

  • May 1 to 16 - Round 1 of Store Selection

  • For returning agents only. Renewals for agents who had stores the previous year.

Walmart Round 2 SNEAK PEEK has been released so you can begin marketing. Attached are last year’s participating carriers and key details, keep in mind these are from last year, things CAN change but probably not by much. See below email as well.

·         For agents interested, please get at least 3 desired requests for better chances of getting a store. I will request all in hopes to get at least one, we could get all and give back what they don’t want.

·         First come first serve, so send me your agents requests as you receive them.

·         For those that make requests prior to Round 2 being released, they will need to send the deposit as soon as we have confirmation of the store, approximately 5/24/19. Copy of the check prior to mailing is required as proof of mailing.

·         Agents making requests DURING Round 2 will also need to send deposits as soon as the store is confirmed. Stores are generally confirmed day after the request is made. Copy of the check prior to mailing is required as proof of mailing.

·         FULL $500 will be due if they do not have 3 Active MA carriers with us. If they reach 3 carriers with us by program start, 10/7/19, they will be eligible for the $250 discount.

·         If check has not been received and no proof before Round 2 closes, store will be dropped.

Good morning Agent that has no MA plans in your county,

 Since there are no MA carriers participating in the Walmart program available in your county you would be eligible for the $250 discount if you have three PDP carriers who also offer MA through us such as Aetna, Humana & UnitedHealthcare.  We will have the confirmed list of 2020 AEP Direct Health participating carriers soon and there will be more details available at that point in time too.  You can sell Medicare Supplements while in the store. 

 Please call me at your earliest convenience as there are details I would like to discuss with you concerning the Med Supps available in your area.

Dear Agent, 

 

I am excited about the helping agents earn a good livelihood by setting up a table at a Walmart and selling Medicare plans during AEP. 

The first step would be to be contracted with UHC, Humana and SilverScript. When that is done successfully I would have you contract with Aetna/Coventry. Three Medicare Advantage contracts will get the price of the table down to $250.

More details on Walmart retail is listed on the forum link below.

https://www.naaip.org/community/topic/69-naaip-newsletter-4-18-2019-walmart-retail-medicare-program/ 

I personally am being swamped getting agents set up at Walmart. I need your cooperation. We still need more agents and there is time. But we need to move fast. 

It should be noted that NAAIP's special offer on Medicare gifts agents 1,000 free mailers for every 5 Medicare sales. We really want you!

My assistant Joshua is the point of contact to set up your Walmart Store and the Medicare mailer program.

I have sent you a AgentXcelerator link to contracting with UHC and others. Please search your emails for "NAAIP/AgentXcelerator eContracting for: UHC". The link to contract via AgentXcelerator will be on that email. 

Over 2,500 Walmart stores are available. Click here for the list 

I hold a six day per week conference call. All next week, including tomorrow at Sunday at 2pm ET I will be talking up getting agents set up at Walmart.

If we have a confirmation that a store has been obtained for you which will come at the end of this week then we will need a check for $500.  You can be refunded $250 soon after you become ready to sell with 3 MA carriers through us.  At the end of the program the other $250 will be available after you participate and complete all of the program requirements which are listed in the attached pdfs.

There is another round beginning on the last week of June and more stores could potentially show up on that list.  I received an updated list of stores from this week as well, if someone wants stores in any counties just ask me I’ll get the available list sent right away. 

However there will also be another round of store selection which will be during the last week of June and stores that have been requested by other FMOs but not paid for will end up in that open pool.  I believe all of these stores we requested for other agents are still available.
