Submitting Medicare Applications to Cornerstone

Due to CMS and carrier requirements, Cornerstone will no longer be able to submit Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage or PDP applications on the behalf of our agents. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, ALL ENROLLMENT APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO THE CARRIER BY THE AGENT. You are welcome to continue to send a copy of the submitted enrollment form to Cornerstone for tracking purposes if you would like to do so.

The allowable methods for submitting enrollments are listed below. If you have any questions, please contact your Medicare service specialist.

 

Electronic (PREFERRED)

Most carriers provide some form of electronic enrollment, via desktop computer, lap top, or iPAD App. This is the carrier’s and Cornerstone’s preferred method for submission.

Advantages to using electronic enrollments include:

  • Protection from CMS 48-hour violations
  • Faster turnaround times on application processing
  • Commissions pay faster
  • Virtually impossible to submit an incomplete application
  • Access to your client’s information electronically through an app/enrollment queue
  • Some carriers provide the ability to print a copy of the application
  • The iPad library stores and organizes enrollment materials (SOBs, formularies, directories, etc.) so there’s no need to order paper supplies anymore

Faxing Directly to the Carrier

Listed below are all of the carrier’s direct fax numbers.  Important things to remember if you are faxing your enrollments:

  • Fax ONE application at a time
  • Keep a copy of your fax confirmation with each application – you will need this if the application is lost or not received by the carrier

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, please let us know!
