Competition for new members is fierce. Medicare only allows Medicare Advantage companies to compare themselves to traditional Medicare—not other private companies. All of the national insurance companies invest heavily to get new members. Only a short window exists, from October 15 – December 7, for potential members to “shop” and switch providers each year. When you combine limited selection time with Medicare's complexity, you get confusion and inert consumers.
DMN3’s proprietary research findings showed that two main factors influenced the Medicare plan selection: “ability to keep my doctors” and “cost.” While KelseyCare Advantage gets top ratings for great care and value, many competitors' plans cost less. In addition, most members joining KelseyCare Advantage must change doctors when they choose them as their provider.
DMN3 used a data-driven approach to gain insights about the current members. We built a profile to understand the key demographics and psychographics. Then we created a model to select the prospects that looked the most like the current members. This targeting helped us narrow the prospect universe from 500,000 to 100,000.
Armed with knowledge and insights, we focused on educating seniors about the benefits of Medicare Advantage compared to traditional Medicare. We used members to explain why they chose KelseyCare Advantage over other private plans. And we stressed the quality care and the credentials of the doctors in the network.
By focusing on quality care and Medicare education, we helped KelseyCare Advantage improve customer acquisition:
