Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Las Vegas Medicare Pros wanted to be sure that seniors could still safely enroll in Medicare Health Plans. They introduced the MERV, or Mobile Enrollment & Registration Vehicle, during the Annual Election Period from October 15, 2020, until December 7, 2020, to accomplish this goal.
The MERV was retrofitted with Plexiglass dividers and viral mist sprays, and agents distributed protective gear such as full-face shields and face masks to visitors. Over the course of two months, the MERV visited sites all over Clark County senior housing and apartment communities, adult day care centers, retail locations, food banks & senior recreational centers.
“It was a pleasure to serve our senior community by sharing this innovative and healthy way of enrolling in Medicare Health Plans,” said a spokesperson for the team at Las Vegas Medicare Pros. “We will continue to make stops around Clark County to help those who are just turning 65, losing health or union coverage through their jobs, or those who have both Medicare and Medicaid as they can enroll throughout the year.”
The MERV, which was created out of necessity to meet Annual Election Period challenges during the pandemic, will serve a greater purpose now as a contactless and convenient option for seniors all over Clark County who are in need of assistance enrolling in Medicare Health Plans during the course of the year.
Over the past 18 years, the agents at Las Vegas Medicare Pros have been working to help seniors get access to Medicare and get the most from it for the lowest cost possible. Even in the face of a changing insurance marketplace, Las Vegas Medicare Pros remains a pivotal resource for seniors in Clark County.
To date, their agents have helped over 15,000 Nevadans enroll in Health Coverage.
“I didn’t even know where to start by myself,” said a recent client. “Asking Ericka was the best help I could ask for. She was bright but calm and collected as she explained all these plans that could set my health up for life.”
Las Vegas Medicare Pros is excited to continue serving the Clark County senior community with all their Medicare needs, especially with the launch of the MERV outreach van.
