Connect4Insurance – Connecture or Sunfire

April 19, 2021

When utilizing Pinnacle Financial Services’ online enrollment platform, the common question is which is a better platform for their enrollments on Connect4Medicare- Connecture or Sunfire. For those of you unfamiliar with Connect4Insurance, Pinnacle Financial Services offers all of our agent’s free online enrollment software for their Medicare Advantage Plans (MAPD), Prescription Drug Plans (PDP), and Medicare Supplement sales. This software is all browser-based and requires no downloads or require any data to be saved onto your computer.
