Health Insurance Leads
The Health Insurance Industry
The health insurance industry has undergone extensive change over the past few years. With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the industry has witnessed a fundamental shift in the way individuals acquire health care. Not only that, but the coverage itself and the repercussions of failing to buy a plan has changed as well. 2013 and 2014 served as trial years for health care reform with well documented issues with the online exchanges and limited penalties for uncovered individuals led to fewer people seeking insurance than anticipated. However, experts project 2015 and beyond to experience rapid growth in both the number of health insurance plans as well as total revenue for the industry. 2015 also marks an increase in the penalty for not buying coverage, which should encourage even more individuals to seek out plans.
Health Insurance Lead Generation
Health insurance is a booming vertical in the lead industry. As more people seek out coverage, insurance agents need to find a way to get in touch with these prospects. Additionally, because the Affordable Care Act leveled the playing field in terms of coverage options that insurance providers can/must provide, there is no longer a significant difference between providers. This removes most competitive advantages from individual providers and encourages them to seek new methods to acquire customers. This is where lead generation comes in. More and more insurance brokers are buying health insurance leads to supplement their marketing and client acquisition efforts. This is leaving a void in the marketplace for health insurance lead providers to fill.
How To Do It
Generating health insurance leads works similarly to any insurance vertical. However, there is only one time frame each year when individuals can purchase plans: during open enrollment. This means that much of your lead generation activity will be focused on just a 3 month period. For 2015 plans, this period is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. Health insurance is also a ping post-dominated vertical. So if you want to buy or sell health insurance leads, your lead distribution software needs advanced ping post features. If you are unsure whether your business needs ping post software or if your software is up to par, we would be glad to help. Feel free to contact us.
