With less than a week left to enroll, please take note of the enrollment application deadlines outlined below:

Online applications

  • Online applications will be accepted through the Producer Portal until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 7.
    • Agents will be unable to submit online applications after midnight.

Paper applications

  • All AEP paper applications for a Jan. 1, 2017 effective date must be completed, signed and dated no later than 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 7.
    • The application date is the date the agent receives/accepts the enrollment request from the beneficiary. The CMS-required timeframe for enrollment processing begins on the application date. 
  • Agents should double-check the paper application to make sure there is no missing or incomplete information, as this can cause a delay in processing.
  • Highmark will only accept paper applications via fax to 1-888-663-0258
  • After AEP ends, all paper applications must be faxed within 48 hours of receipt.
  • Applications faxed after 48 hours are non-commissionable -- without exception. Applications cannot be back-dated. Please save the fax-confirmation pages for all applications. 
    • The member will still be eligible for coverage effective Jan. 1, 2017 if the application is received after 48 hours; however, the agent will not receive commission.
