What is the Medicare Quote Engine?

The Medicare Quote Engine (MQE) is a proprietary service for independent, licensed insurance agents who are registered users of Ritter Insurance Marketing's website, RitterIM.com.

The MQE provides insurance agents with quotes on Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D products, in addition to final expense products.

How does the Medicare Quote Engine work?

First, the agent logs into RitterIM.com. If you're not a registered user, you can register here. Once you are logged in, you can select Medicare Quote Engine from the Quoting menu. You can get instant quotes and product comparisons to help you find an appropriate plan for your client.

You simply enter your client's information to run instant quotes

  • Medicare Advantage Plans
    Medicare Advantage quotes are run by entering only a zip code. Agents can quote Medicare Advantage (MA) plans with summaries of benefits and compare benefits for up to three MA plans side by side. The MA plans cover all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

  • Medicare Supplement Plans
    MQE's will also allow an agent to quote Medicare Supplement rates in 47 states. The quoting technology will take into account zip code, age, gender, tobacco use and marital status to provide Medicare Supplement quotes for any plan (A through N) and any modal factor (Annual, Quarterly, Monthly) including AM Best Rating, Policy Fee and the date of the last rate adjustment.

How does Medicare Quote Engine help your business?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 shortened the agent's "selling season" for Medicare Advantage from 20 weeks to just seven weeks. This creates a huge need for agents to efficiently use technology to improve their sales activities and ease their administrative burden. The Medicare Quote Engine does just that.

The MQE is integrated into Ritter's Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. Ritter's CRM allows agents to manage the data in their book of business (clients, leads and prospects) and saves them time by linking to the MQE for instant quotes.

How does MQE help your clients?

By giving you the information you need to find the right products for your clients, you can stay on top of plan changes and service them better. Some agents are simply unaware of all the options available to their client or don't have the time to review a multitude of options manually.

With Medicare Quote Engine, you can get the information you need in seconds to make the right recommendations for your clients and prospects.
