Agents will have two opportunities to learn about our new Medicare enrollment platformAscend.

During the training, agents will learn about Ascend’s features, which include:

  • eSOA – Electronic Scope of Appointment, which makes quick work of these federally required forms
  • RATE – Remote Agent Telephonic Enrollment, a convenient process that complies with federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements
  • Quick Quote – A tool that allows you to quickly send email quotes that include detailed plan information and an enrollment application
  • Send for Signature – To electronically sign documents
  • Value-Based Enrollment (VBE) – This "opt in" feature allows applicants to  complete a health risk assessment (HRA) and schedule an annual wellness visit (AWV) as part of the application process
  • And much more!
