Acquiring new members is a strategically important focus for health insurance companies. Countless hours are spent developing and pricing products and creating marketing plans to promote them. The goal is to end the enrollment period with large gains in membership. To achieve this, you must cost effectively reach current and prospective members within their ever-changing channel preferences, and provide relevant information in the moments that matter.
In the post-ACA era, consumers have the ability to shop for health insurance plans like never before. This new consumer market shows an unfamiliar shopper journey. Consumers are searching online, comparing plans, seeking input from social networks, reading reviews and eventually making decisions. And they have high expectations from insurers. When shopping for insurance, consumers expect you to provide accurate, easy-to-understand information across various channels. They expect personalization, but what they’re actually seeing is information that’s confusing, inadequate or too similar to other health plan material to be compelling.
To set yourself apart, you need to be able to identify and segment your members and prospects—and then personalize content for them—at the right time and through the right channels. This is achieved by using advanced data strategies to better understand member lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors.
In this webinar, we will discuss the evolving health insurance market and how to effectively leverage data insights to acquire members in a highly-competitive, consumer-centric shopping experience.
