Our technology enables advisors to efficiently add on supplemental sales when there is a product need- such as major medical gap plans, which is only available through IPA advisors- can be added to an ACA plan with just a few keystrokes.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 24, 2015
IPA-Family, LLC, a division of The IHC Group (NYSE: IHC), today released its sales results for the first two weeks of Obamacare open enrollment period, which started on Nov. 1st and runs through Jan. 31, 2016.
“Our sales are up over 400% from this period last year, driven primarily by a growth in sales to consumers who are shopping for health plans both on and off the exchange,” said David Keeler, President and Chief Operating Officer of IPA Family.
In addition to record sales of Affordable Care Act (ACA) policies, IPA’s advisors are a leading marketer of short term medical for IHC. Short term medical plans are designed to provide medical coverage for consumers who find themselves temporarily without health insurance. IPA advisors enroll major medical coverage, short term medical and supplemental plans through a proprietary enrollment platform available at http://www.HealtheDeals.com.
According to Brad Frazier, an advisor with IPA, "The vast product line that the IPA Family offers, alongside the state-of-the-art technology to utilize and process clients’ specific insurance solutions is in my view, second to none in the industry hands down."
“Significant enhancement and ready access to Health eDeals has been a game-changer this year,” said David Kettig, Chief Operating Officer of The IHC Group. “It has allowed our advisors to efficiently add on supplemental sales when there is a product need. For instance, our VIP series of major medical gap plans, which is only available through IPA advisors, can be added to a major medical plan enrolled on Health eDeals with just a few keystrokes, saving both the producer and the consumer valuable time.”
IHC recently committed to spending $1.5 million dollars on technology enhancements that will make it even easier and faster for advisors to enroll Obamacare and supplemental health plans. Mr. Kettig added, “IHC’s investment in innovation is on-going. While other carriers are considering pulling away entirely from health insurance, we are investing in becoming a market leader in providing much-needed, affordable ancillary coverages.”
“At IPA Family, we know that our success hinges on our ability to hire top producers and experienced sales leaders,” added Mr. Keeler. “To that end, we have launched an enhancement to our new advisor program that provides recent hires a new service called Telephonic Concierge, which gives them sales support via phone, email or text message. We think that this new service will accelerate the career growth of our new hires and help us reach even more consumers during this open enrollment.”
