What Are Scope Of Appointment Forms? 🤔

The Scope of Appointment form is a federally mandated form that documents an appointment and protects both the Medicare beneficiary and the Medicare agent. This form allows the beneficiary to check off exactly what they would like to talk about regarding Medicare so that they aren't solicited for something they aren't interested in. The Scope of Appointment must be filled out every time you meet with us by law. We can send it through your e-mail or text and only takes a few minutes! We know it can get repetitive but its an important part of protecting Medicare beneficiaries from being taken advantage of.
