Health plan providers often use Hallmark greeting cards to help remind members to perform annual wellness actions.

A Unique Marketing Format for Health Plans is Here—Hallmark Cards

Every year we help health insurance providers send Hallmark cards to their members. But why do health plans send Hallmark cards in the first place?

What we’ve found is that Hallmark cards build relationships with both current plan members and with prospective plan members, influencing their understanding of what the health plan has to offer.

This is all due to the simple fact that Hallmark cards get opened, read, understood and acted on better than other mail formats. Watch this three-minute video to find out how health plans nationwide use Hallmark cards to acquire new members, motivate healthy behaviors, retain current members and increase HEDIS®, CAHPS® and Star ratings.
