Key Insights

TRAFFIK Health conducted audience-specific research in California to identify marketing opportunities for Easy Choice. Our research identified 5 distinct Medicare audience segments that were being underserved by other health plans.

To deliver authentic, resonant messaging, TRAFFIK Health created in-language, omnichannel campaigns featuring members of each segment at iconic spaces in their communities—driving inclusive engagement specifically crafted for each audience.
