Follow up makes the difference

February 10, 2014

With less than 50 days left to sign up for health insurance, here’s an update on how things are going in the Buckeye State.

Phonebankers

Thousands of Ohioans now have coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. We’ve been working hard to make sure that many more people enroll by the March 31 deadline. Last week was our most productive week to date in making follow-up calls to the uninsured. Take a look at the numbers about those calls:

  • 16% of those called had enrolled successfully;
  • 47% had not acted since we spoke to them – they were waiting to hear from us to learn more;
  • 23%  tried to enroll on their own, but didn’t finish the process. They needed help, and we called to provide it.

So if you are looking for a way to help people learn and access health insurance coverage – come make follow-up calls with us. You are 4 times more likely to talk to someone who really needs that additional touch to motivate them to sign up.

Find a phonebank near you this week and see for yourself what kind of  an impact you’ll have!
