Member A & E Groups

Medicare Sales User Groups


      These user groups are telephonic meeting groups, chaired by RISE board members or select volunteers, and made up of sales leaders and staff from Medicare Advantage health plans, for the most part. We also have representatives from provider organizations that are closely aligned with plans, plus some participants that work for community partners of the association or those who work as independent contractors.

      The purpose of the user group is to create a learning community among local and regional plans through sharing questions or challenges where a member wants to get input or advice from colleagues and peers. The topics cover a wide range of matters involving:

  • Best use of field sales resources, such as sales seminars, local community marketing, and relationship development with community organizations
  • The differences in staff utilization during lock-in
  • Broker channel management and FMO relationship management
  • Performance metrics and relative costs
  • Oversight, training, and compliance
  • AEP readiness preparation
  • Insourcing versus outsourcing call center service
  • The optimal temporary staffing models for AEP

     Often the open dialogue format provides an in-depth conversation that involves shared experiences (successes and failures) that help the group gain consensus on best practice approaches, based on particular circumstances on the ground.  This peer-based interactivity is the key to the success and popularity of this forum.

     Their roles include all levels in their organizations from staff positions up through all levels of the sales organization. They include job titles such as:

  • Channel Compliance and Oversight
  • Compliance Training Auditor
  • Director of Consumer Sales
  • Director of Inside Sales
  • Health Plan Sales Trainer
  • Manager, Director, VP Brokerage Sales
