Cigna is most likely getting ready to expand again in 2020 and BenaVest is working closely with health insurance agents to ensure that they are able to get contracted and are ready to sell new 2021 Cigna ACA Plans during the upcoming 2020 Healthcare Open Enrollment.
In 2019, BenaVest was one of the TOP ACA General Agency FMOs and was able to assist agents in getting registered for contracting overnight through their new AI Contracting System. ACA Carriers like Cigna, strategically reveal their new expansion plans between July and September making it a challenge in some cases for agents to get onboarded in time to sell. BenaVest’s organized speedy contracting process allows agents to feel at ease through the whole contracting process which in some cases happens within a couple of business days due to their Autopilot Software Systems. BenaVest will also publish all expansion news on their ACA Insurance Carrier Expansion Blog as the carriers roll out expansions to keep agents up to date on appointments.
BenaVest’s Cigna Contracting manager, Tina Gannon, said, “Cigna is more than an insurance company, they have constructed a full health and wellness company focused on both the body and the mind, providing a whole experience to their customers. Their integrated benefits help them predict customer needs so they can provide proactive, focused engagement and support which makes the customer more self-sufficient, healthier and happier. This means their broker partners have more time to focus on building their business!” Agents that are trying to get appointed with Cigna, can visit BenaVest’s Cigna Agent Contracting webpage for a step-by-step video guide that takes agents through the whole process of contracting and how to get appointed with Cigna.
BenaVest has also just rolled out it’s “New Free Robust Agent Membership Platform in June of 2020”. The new Platform has 4 primary components, Client Marketing, an AI Agency Builder Platform, Autopilot Webinar Agent Training & Powerpoint Tool Maximizer, and Carrier Resource page for almost every and any Health, Life, and Annuity Carrier in the industry.
The Client Marketing section has step-by-step guides illustrating proven strategic social and local marketing tactics that BenaVest uses to create its own internet leads on platforms like Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The ad creatives lead to the agent’s personalized websites, which are click funnels and do influence the potential client to register for help or the valuable tools that are sent to them during the registration process. Then the potential clients are put into an autopilot drip marketing campaign. Agents are able to strategically put together client marketing campaigns and have their budget matched by BenaVest at zero-cost all in the platform. BenaVest has over $1,000,000 in co-op set aside for the upcoming health enrollment periods for 2021 OEP that they are looking to share with producers and partner agencies. This co-op is available for radio, TV, lead gen, and retail space.
The Agency Builder Platform is very similar to its Client Marketing Platform in that it also has step by step social, local, and email campaigns that have proven to recruit mass amounts of agents and agencies in BenaVest’s own downline. The platform also includes all of the software necessary to build an agency and keep track of all of the agents that request contracting and get cemented in their downline. The contracting is done on a live interactive document so agents can see contracts being processed in real-time.
The Training Platform is available to the agents and all of the agents in their downline. Agents have access to all of our training across all lines. These trainings are automated webinars that are hosted by some of the best minds in the industry with a combined 70 years of experience in the field. They also include the Powerpoint the webinar was based on that includes all of the tools and marketing material they need to get their first sale on the books. Once trained, agents can also use these training tools to recruit agents into their own downline.
If BenaVest’s primary goal when creating this new platform was to build an insurance platform that encompasses everything an insurance agent needs to write more business and build an agency, they have definitely succeeded, Regina Sara (Director & Part Owner) says “We have agents that have recruited 30 agents in 30 days and agents that have also written over 200 policies in 30 days using our Step-by-Step Marketing Guides, so I guess we are doing something right!)
