Ameritas individual shopping website enhancements
We recently rolled out enhancements on our dental and vision individual shopping site myplan.ameritas.com. It includes an updated user interface, an option to opt-in for electronic delivery of plan information, and a refreshed product portfolio in some areas.
The best part of the website enhancement is your individual clients get a better shopping experience, and all you need to do is continue sharing your unique shopping hyperlink to generate sales.
