Also, Anthem has refreshed some of the underwriting guidelines in thier medicare supplement field underwriting guide. This tool is designed to assist during the application process and help determine what medical conditions would result in automatic denial of an application and when other plan options should be considered that may be better suited for the prospect — all before submitting a Med Supp application.
It is important to note that this is not a complete listing of all the medical conditions or prescribed medications that would result in an application denial. These guidelines are broker tools ONLY and are not to be shared with members or prospects. Brokers should remember that the company is the underwriter, and Anthem is not asking the broker to make underwriting decisions. If there are questions about whether or not a Med Supp application would be approved or denied due to medical underwriting, brokers/agents should submit applications as normal and allow the underwriters to manage the underwriting review process.
Finally, keep in mind Anthem’s Med Supp bonus is a great opportunity to increase your earnings. CLICK HERE TO VIEW!
