We have never had many policies in the database, and until recently our process was to reach out to advisors for that plan. Our Michigan team had precious few medical policies as well. I wanted to call out the Sutherland team for their amazing work in adding over a hundred new policies-not just PA forms, but fully-developed medical policies as well. Many of these were dated 2016 and earlier, so they had been missed for years.
Our Mumbai team is struggling with our conventions, working all day with Excel, and large workloads. Every plan they've pulled this month has been brand-new to them. These are plans we've researched multiple times this year alone, and they still manage to dig up all kinds of new information. This is not something we gather statistics on, but anecdotally, I've been reading a lot of new (previously-missed) policies in the last two weeks.
I'm very glad to have this kind of ingenuity on our side, enhancing our product a few plans at a time. If you've had a similar experience, I ask you to please give the Mumbai team that feedback as well.
