Important Updates Regarding National General Short Term Products

We have just received word from National General that they are being required to refile their short term plans and rates with the Ohio Department of Insurance. Until further notice from National General, no quoting or enrollment for any short-term sales in the state of Ohio will be allowed.

You are able to still quote and enroll their other products in Ohio, or all of their products in Kentucky, Indiana, and other states.

They will be sending out further notice sometime today, but wanted to get this out to you as quickly as possible.

If you have clients needing short term in Ohio, we would recommend going with UHOne for the time being.

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.
