COVID-19 Enrollment Procedures for Medicare Advantage Plans

BCBSNE now accepts a scope of appointment (SOA) through email and voice messaging.

Electronic SOA: At the beginning of the appointment, you can share the electronic SOA by sending the template from an email address that clearly identifies you as the agent (i.e., firstname.lastname@gmail.com). The beneficiary will need to respond, and you will need to maintain a copy of the electronic SOA for 10+ years.
Download the email template

Voice SOA: At the beginning of the appointment, you can call 877-632-5837 and leave a voicemail with the beneficiary. You will need to record the verbally agreed upon scope and the beneficiary’s agreement to hear plan options. This will be maintained by BCBSNE for 10+ years.
