Hello,

Getting my start in WI with health and life license, going the Medicare advantage and supplement route. I've done my AHIP, UHC, and Humana certs.

I am torn as the road to get here has me light in any advertising budget. I am all for cold calling and face to face door knocking introductions - but seems the Medicare Advantage rules on unsolicited contact are so restrictive.

Anything you can recommend as far as how I can put in sweat equity to make a handful of sales - then use the revenue from those sales towards advertising correctly with direct mail? I just need to prime the pump so to speak.

I am open to all legal methods, hard work and effort is not a problem. My only limit is cash. I have no problem with cold calling, just don't want to get successful and then penalized for crossing the line by selling an MA with an unsolicited flag.

I forgot to mention, I get quality T65-74 lists from my FMO.

Thanks!
WC

Part of your problem may be that you have two carriers that are NOT medigap price competitive in a lot of areas (Wisconsin). They have nice MAPD plans but you can't cold call for that.
