As a result, in accordance with, 42 CFR section 422.62(b)(4) and also the CMS Medicare Managed Care Manual (Enrollment and Disenrollment, Chapter 2, Section 30.4.4), all states and counties are granted a Special Election Period (SEP) through July 31, 2020.

  • If you have not certified for plan year 2019, completing the 2020 certification will make you ready to sell for 2019 also.
  • Medigold will start paying brokers directly as of 1/1/2020 for all new business and renewals! Thus, when completing 2020 certification brokers will need to complete a W-9 and ACH information to collect for payment.

 

If you have any questions, please contact your Cornerstone Senior Marketing Sales Representative.
