What you need to know to prepare for the contracting tool coming July 1
We’re replacing our existing Aetna Medicare contracting system (nomoreforms™) with an improved tool that will expedite the contracting process for MA/MAPD products. We want to let you know that some of the key dates previously announced have changed, see below. The new contracting tool will now be available starting July 1.
The new contracting tool (powered by CallidusCloud®) will streamline and simplify the contracting process, and improve the onboarding/contracting experience for new Medicare producers. We look forward to sharing more detail with you in upcoming weeks.
Currently contracted producers will not need to take any action to recontract. Instead, their contracting records will be transferred automatically. If producers need to make a change to their heirarchy, they'll need to be invited by their upline using the new contracting tool.
Here’s what you need to know to plan ahead for contracting changes
From June 17 - 30, there will be a temporary blackout period for submitting new contracts and making hierarchy changes to your current contract, while we switch to the new contracting system. However, you’ll still be able to submit demographic and banking updates through Producer World, and these updates will be made.
Starting July 1, uplines can invite new producers to contract with us or existing producers to change their level or hierarchy structure when needed. The invite will connect them to the new tool through Producer World. If they don't have a Producer World account, they'll be asked to create one.
How will the new contracting process save you time?
The new contracting tool is connected with the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR), which means producer demographic and state license info from NIPR will automatically flow into the new contracting tool. As a result, you will no longer have to manually notify us about demographic and state license changes.
Your invitation to contract with Aetna Medicare will take you directly to the new contracting tool. So, it'll be easier for you to navigate through the process.
Update: NEW key dates to remember
Last day to submit new contracts into nomoreforms.
