Medicare holds an open enrollment every year for new beneficiaries, but this year some smaller insurance companies saw a bigger turnout than they’re used to.
SCAN Health Plan out of California will be adding 62,200 new members to their insurance plans.
This is larger than their expectation, which resulted in a growth of 30%.
Why did a smaller health insurance firm become popular through Medicare?
Those who spread the information by word of mouth are pleased with their services, and often are the best form of marketing.
SCAN is part of the Medicare Advantage plans, and 25% of the people enrolling switched from UnitedHealthcare.

SCAN is a non-profit working with Medicare and a great alternative for anyone untrusting of larger insurance companies that work to gain a profit off their customers.
