Healthcare Insurance Medicare Advantage Secret Shoppers – Cheap Pay For One’s Time and Effort
Posted Feb 03 2010 8:21am
I was cleaning out the junk folder today with email and ran across this interesting offer here. Anyway, I guess someone is doing some reporting back here, but I wonder for $30.00 and the demands to shop for Medicare Part D plan would really be worth anyone’s time? Looks to me like it takes a bit of time to first make a phone call and secondly go meet in person to evaluate an insurance agent.
It’s hard enough having to really do this without going through such pains for such a minimal bit of compensation for all of this. Anyway, from the junk mail today and I changed the company name here to protect the spammer, why did I do that? Second thought, I know why I did that (grin). At any rate, this appears to be where secret shoppers come from to evaluate buying prospective health insurance to judge quality service and honesty. Maybe I did myself in here too as the email also stated I could get a $10.00 referral bonus if I found someone else willing to do all of this for $30.00.
Anyway, I found this interesting here to see how folks are found for this type of program and again for the amount of pay given for all of this effort, and again something that all of us today may not relish in. On the other hand this could drill down the fact that patient advocates are really needed and helpful in this part of the process too. BD
