Wellcare/Meridian Updates

Here are some recent updates and highlights from Wellcare & Meridian we would like to share:

  •  The 2020 Annual Certification Training (ACT) is scheduled to release July 9th! Per the certification process, after you complete contracting you will be enrolled in ACT. However, due to the transition of training from 2019 ACT to 2020 ACT, the earliest you will be enrolled into ACT is July 9th. Completing 2020 ACT will fulfill the ACT requirement to market/sell both 2019 and 2020 WellCare products. Note: In order to market/sell 2019 MeridianCareCare products, agents must complete the 2019 MeridianCare certification requirements through Miramar (Sentinel Elite).  Read More Here

MeridianCare’s New Online Enrollment Application

Attention MeridianCare Agents:

MeridianCare is excited to announce for the 2019 sales season the launch of their brand new Online Enrollment Application(OEA). This is the required method of submission for all Cornerstone appointed brokers. They have made some major improvements to the OEA that will make it a lot easier to complete an application for a beneficiary. For example, Meridian added the Scope of Appointment and the Statement of Understanding to the OEA. See link below for a user guide that will take you step-by-step through the online application.

There are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. If an application does not have an email address that field is not require. Also, please do not enter your email address in this field since it is stored to the members account.
  2. If you would like a copy of the application for your records, you can print a copy by clicking the link on the confirmation page at the end. For further instructions refer to the user guide below.
  3. If you have never used the OEA before remember to select “I am an agent” so the system can assign you as the agent of record.

If you have any questions regarding the Online Enrollment Application please reach out to your Cornerstone Senior Marketing Representative.
