Insurance Administrative Solutions has optimized the services it offers in order to help more MedSupp carriers meet fast-approaching filing deadlines for the new 2010 plans.
LARGO, FL, Oct. 6 2009 /InsuranceNews.net/ -- Effective June 1, 2010, two new Medicare Supplement (MedSupp) plans, M and N, will go into effect, with Plans E, H, I, and high-deductible J no longer being offered.

However, many carriers could find themselves at a competitive disadvantage as they attempt to navigate the multi-faceted patchwork of state regulations to get their products filed in a compliant and timely manner.
