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.
