”Faces of Nevada” Medicare Advantage Calendar
VIRGEN has created an annual senior-focused calendar for the last 13 years. This award-winning direct marketing piece has become a labor of love. The creative process involves an interview and selection of actual senior Medicare Advantage members. Each year, VIRGEN speaks to numerous seniors, which provides invaluable information on their opinions of the plan, likes and dislikes and media consumption habits. These informal “focus groups” help inform the OEP campaign with important marketing data. The calendar project creates immeasurable goodwill and brand ambassadors of the chosen members.
Medicare Part D Marketing
VIRGEN has worked to research, plan and deploy acquisition strategies for Medicare Part D throughout the Western states.
Results: Our target acquisition goal of 20,000 calls per week was met and surpassed.
As the landscape of health care coverage and delivery changes in conjunction with Medicaid expansion, marketing to this population has become a vital and fluid part of health insurance delivery. VIRGEN has created and deployed communication plans and specialized outreach for the Medicaid population for over 15 years. As this multi-cultural population tends to seek health care for their children and not themselves, overlook appointments, experience transportation challenges and ignore preventive health, it is critical to devise tactics that are relevant, motivating and authentic.
Marketing a commercial health insurance plan encompasses strategic thinking, market awareness and the ability to react quickly and within strict insurance guidelines. VIRGEN has worked over 16 years with leading health insurance providers to drive awareness, increase membership, and solve specific issues.
Results: Maintained the dominant position in the market and consistently grew membership with ever-increasing competitors.
VIRGEN delivers innovative strategies when marketing health care delivery by intersecting consumer needs with the ever-changing advances in CDO product and service offerings. New models of promoting patient-centered, integrated health care such as e-health tools, notable app technologies and an expanded clinical facility footprint assist in surmounting challenges such as access to care, rising costs and doctor shortages. As the target audience for CDOs is expansive, VIRGEN uses predictive modeling and perception studies to identify, define and deliver tactical messaging most likely to resonate with differing audience segments.
Results: Increase recruitment of primary care doctors, growth of clinics over 300%, instituted senior care programs, launched and grew mobile and e-visits to meet corporate goals.
VIRGEN has aligned with multiple organizations to promote health education and wellness programs. Whether part of a curriculum for commercial health plans or targeted to large corporations, VIRGEN has created campaigns focused on diet, exercise and the importance of incorporating routine health screenings. Niche strategies were crafted to address specific issues such as stress reduction, proper insulin injection technique, smoking cessation, as well as the correct installation of child-safe car seats. All involved the curation of custom content, novel events, and rewarding progress with incentive items such as the FitBit and other wearable activity monitors.
Result: The measurable goal showed lowered insurance claims within the commercial health plans and decreased absenteeism.
