In the Medicare health plan world, there are many players competing for market share. Direct Choice has an exciting new product that gives insurers a solid advantage during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). Launched in partnership with one our Blue Cross and Blue Shield clients, DCORES enables enhanced results from Medicare plan seminars—long an important but untracked response channel in the education and persuasion of Medicare-eligible targeted prospects.
DCORES is an innovative online scheduling and communication system that drives and manages leads efficiently to local Medicare plan seminars. Deployed along with a strong multi-channel direct response campaign, DCORES delivers breakthrough response and conversion metrics—as much as 81% in the pilot.
- Increase market share

DCORES eliminates the flaws inherent in the typical Medicare plan seminar system:

The user has their choice of convenient nearby seminars. One-click reservation makes it simple and trackable. The user can also choose to see all seminars in their county.
Name and contact information completes the process. A handy map shows the location. DCORES also includes email confirmation.
